164 kW solar system to be installed on roof of Manor parking garage Kansas City, Mo. – February 15, 2013: Kansas City is getting a large addition to its solar energy production. Krtek Real Estate and Worldwide Energy recently installed a large solar system on the roof of the Manor Square parking garage.


“Kansas City has one of the highest solar potentials in the country, and we are excited for Krtek Real Estate to take advantage of that,” said Gaylen Davenport, COO of Worldwide Energy. “Solar is an efficient and smart way to offset the utility usage that the facility uses, and with the tenKsolar technology, it produces more energy than the average 119 kW system.”

The solar array is comprised of 628 tenKsolar RAIS solar photovoltaic modules, with a rating of 119 kilowatts. The array utilizes solar reflector technology, which will boost the power production to an equivalent rating of 164 kilowatts, one of the highest production rating in the state of Missouri. The tenKsolar system is the only solar design without cell-to-cell dependency. The module uses conventional, high quality crystalline silicon cells, but is packaged in a module design for superior and optimal production. In its first year, the system will produce more than 205,000 kilowatt-hours, and around 5,020,287.


kilowatt hours over 25 years. The energy produced by the solar array will prevent the release of more than 300,000 pounds of carbon dioxide. In the Kansas City area, the average annual sunshine level is nearly five hours a day, above average compared to other parts of the U.S. “Kansas City is in a unique position to utilize solar,” added Davenport. “While our city may not be known for renewable energy, we can certainly help lead the way for other businesses in the area.”


Solar energy is a growing field in Kansas City and the country. According to the Department of Energy, solar PV has averaged an annual growth rate of more than 50 percent. The global total of solar PV was roughly 67 Gigawatts in 2011, compared with just 1.5 GW in 2000. Worldwide Energy completed installation in January.
