Iola Metropolis Council to once more contemplate photo voltaic panels

Iola City Council members are again asked to sign a project to bring a solar field to Iola.

The difference between the proposed project and a council member who was rejected in 2019 is the costs and potential benefits, which would be “much more lucrative than during the first project,” wrote provisional city administrator Corey Schinstock in prepared comments to the council, the costs of which were forecast around $ 3.7 million plus a slight premium for electricity tariffs.

Energy advisor Scott Shreve will be at the council meeting on Monday to discuss three options available to the city, depending on different funding levels and the city’s upfront cost change.
