KANSAS CITY, MO – Sharma-Crawford, Attorneys At Law, a leading immigration litigation law firm headquartered in Kansas City’s Westside, has installed one of the first solar electrical generation systems on a Kansas City law firm to date. The Sharma-Crawford law firm recently purchased and renovated 515 Avenida Cesar E. Chavez, bordering Kansas City’s Westside and the Crossroads Arts District.
According to Rekha Sharma-Crawford, the decision to add solar energy was easy given both economic incentives and the firm’s belief in environmental stewardship.
“Part of our decision was influenced by KCP&L rebates that make this a very attractive investment with a quick payback,” said Sharma-Crawford. “More importantly, it’s the right thing to do on many levels.”
The 19 kW system, designed and installed by Brightergy Solar, consists of 84 solar panels and is simply ballasted on the rooftop – requiring no roof penetrations. Photos of the system can be seen on Sharma-Crawford’s website.
The system will produce about 25,000 kilowatt hours per year which will offset almost 80% of the firm’s electricity usage. It is the pollution reducing equivalent to taking 9 cars off the road for 30 years.
Sharma-Crawford added that investing in Kansas City’s inner city both by rehabbing a vacant building and adding solar energy, is consistent with their immigration law firm’s beliefs and values. “We are passionate about our work in immigration law but also about our community and our neighbors,” said Sharma-Crawford.
