About Us

Green energy for a greener Baldwin City.

The City partnered with Evergy to install a solar field behind the Public Utilities Building at 1015 Orange Street, which was completed in September of 2019. The solar field adds to the City’s mix of green and renewable energy. Click here to check the energy output of the solar field.

"Baldwin City has amazing small businesses that the community embraces and supports."

-Melinda Hipple
