ForeFront Power Announces Commercial Operation on Solar Energy Project

ForeFront Power, a main developer of distributed solar and energy stockpiling projects in the U.S., today announced commercial activity of the biggest solar undertaking in Kane County, Ill. With 7,384 boards, the 2.8-megawatt project conveys power to the Mooseheart Child City and School (Mooseheart), a non-benefit private childcare office for kids and adolescents out of luck. The undertaking made in excess of 44 positions during the development and activity stages.

The Mooseheart solar task got motivations through the state's Adjustable Block Program (ABP), which was set up by the Future Energy Jobs Act to help the improvement of new photovoltaic distributed age and local area solar ventures in Illinois. While the program has been fruitful in creating new clean power in the express, the subsidizing for the program has been depleted and should be restored for the state to see continuous development in the area.

"Industries that create jobs in Illinois should stay in Illinois," said Rep. Keith Wheeler of Illinois' 50th district. "The Mooseheart solar project is a testament to the job creation engine that solar energy has become in our state over the past few years as a result of the Future Energy Jobs Act. The Mooseheart organization is a treasure in the Fox Valley for a long list of reasons, and their leadership of building one of the largest solar projects in our local area is just the latest example of why."

"Since we are a non-profit organization funded through the generosity of donors, every dollar counts. We are very pleased to partner with ForeFront Power in this opportunity to demonstrate strong fiscal stewardship, and with the money saved over the next 25 years of the solar project's life, we'll be able to reinvest those dollars into other programs in order to better serve our youth," said executive director of Mooseheart, Gary Urwiler. "We understand that clean air and a healthy environment are linked to a child's potential for success, so it aligns squarely within our mission to offset 114 million pounds of carbon emissions with this energy project, directly contributing to cleaner air and a better overall environment for the young children and teens we serve every day."

"Mooseheart Child City & School is an organization with an inspiring mission to care for and educate youth in need," said Chris Wall, director of construction for ForeFront Power. "The ForeFront Power team was honored to build this project to help Mooseheart save money and demonstrate energy leadership."

Mooseheart's solar task is a solitary ground-mounted venture sited on a 1,000-section of land grounds found 38 miles west of Chicago. Reformist Energy Group of Aurora, Ill., helped Mooseheart Child City and School source this perfect power bargain and supervised the undertaking from beginning to fulfillment. SolAmerica filled in as ForeFront Power's designing, obtainment, and development (EPC) accomplice on the Mooseheart project.
