Salina Solar Installation

Salina, KS,  May 15, 2019 – Foley Power Solutions, a division of Foley Equipment, recently completed a solar microgrid installation on the roof of the company’s Salina facility. Foley Equipment is a proud provider of solar, microgrid and energy storage systems to customers throughout Kansas and northwest Missouri. 

The company’s 306 solar panel microgrid will create 112kWof renewable energy at a cost savings of $$12,000 in its first year with a planned savings of $600k over 25 years. Installed by Cromwell Solar atop Foley Equipment’s 2225 N. Ohio St. facility, the solar panels will provide enough energy to power the entire building, and Foley will be net metering excess energy with Westar, a local electric utility for an added financial benefit. The project represents the largest on-site solar installation for a commercial business in Salina. 

“Foley Equipment is committed to Salina.  In 2018, we completed a new facility to serve our customers in central KS,” said Ann Konecny, CEO of Foley Equipment.  “During the design stages of the building, we included a rooftop solar array to save on energy costs and to be environmentally conscious.” 

The Cat Microgrid technology suite is designed to reduce fuel expenses, lower utility bills and decrease emissions while increasing energy efficiency in even the most challenging environments.

“Our knowledge of generator sets and distributed power combined with the strength of the Cat dealer network provides customers with a reliable, long-term business partner,” said James Kerschinske, Power Solutions Sales Manager. “Together with Cat Microgrid technologies, Foley delivers an innovative, financially viable solution to incorporate sustainable energy sources, like solar and energy storage battery systems, into traditional power generation offerings.”

As the power generation industry evolves towards a broader range of energy solutions, Foley Equipment is helping lead the way. Learn more about Cat solar energy solutions at
