The future of solar energy in Kewanee looks as bright as a sunny day in June. In fact, to a large extent the future is now for solar, as a number of homes and businesses in the Kewanee area have already installed solar generating systems.

According to Kevin Yepsen, some 2.1 megawatts of electricity is already being produced by solar installations in this area.
