About The Project
Invenergy began development of the Chisholm Trail Solar Energy Center in 2019 and since then, we have been working to secure agreements with landowners, perform required studies to support solar development, and meet with local stakeholders.
Currently, our efforts are largely focused on securing a permit for the project and conducting all necessary studies to ensure we site our project facilities in the most appropriate and responsible locations.
During the life of the project, the Chisholm Trail Solar Energy Center is projected to pay millions of dollars in property taxes, land payments, salaries to employees, and payments for local goods and services, which will contribute to economic activity in the Sedgwick County area.
Kansas is a national leader in renewable energy. Kansas's renewable energy industry contributes greatly to the economy and has invested over $15 billion in energy projects across the state and supports a workforce of over 3,300 Kansans.
To avoid and minimize impacts to wildlife and other natural resources, we work with state and federal agencies and other interested stakeholders to site, build, and operate our facilities responsibly.
The Chisholm Trail Solar Energy Center is a great opportunity for Sedgwick County, with millions to be invested in the local economy over the life of the project. We selected Sedgwick County for this project after intense and careful evaluation due to the:
• Existing transmission lines limiting the need for new infrastructure
• Private agricultural land
• Proximity to state highways
We take our commitment to our local host communities seriously and look forward to continuing to work closely with Sedgwick County, Maize, and Colwich to contribute to the area's economic development, and to provide an additional supply of clean, homegrown energy in Kansas.
