McKees Solar Park Fund Drive

$9,695 of $260,000 goal

Raised by 127 people in 43 months
Welcome to the fundraising page for the City of Newark's McKees Solar Park.  The 230-kilowatt solar installation will go live in the summer of 2014, generating clean, renewable power for Newark residents.  City Council voted unanimously on June 23, 2014 to launch programs to promote community involvement in the Park.  Be a "Sun Ray" investor by investing $50 in return for a $1 monthly credit* for 120 months on your City utility bill ($0.01 per kWh credit for 100 kWh of your power reserved from McKees Solar Park). Or, pledge a tax-deductible donation to the park and be recognized on the City's website.  "Solar Panel" donors will be recognized on park displays for their larger contribution, which pays for the cost of an entire solar panel!  Find the donation amount that suits you best.  We can't thank you enough for your support! 

Prefer to donate directly to the City?  No problem!  Click here for a fillable form that you can submit directly to the City's website, click here for a printable form, or stop by City Hall at 220 South Main Street for a signup form.  Again, thank you for your support!

*"Sun Ray" Solar Investments are limited to City of Newark Residential electric customers only.  200 reservations or "blocks" of solar power are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Limit one investment per electric service address.  Utility bill will reflect all electric usage at prevailing retail rates, less the $1.00 rebate on the 100-kwh solar block.

Will trees or field - wildlife habitat - be mowed to make way for this? Or will this, responsibly, be placed over top of roofs and/or parking lots? I'm hoping the latter.
