Kane Area Radio Association installing Solar Panels on WXZY Studios with Grant Support from WPPSEF

July 12, 2023

The Kane Area Radio Association, a non-profit/non-commercial entity who oversee the operation of WXZY 101.7 FM, has received a $30,000 grant from WPPSEF to install 5.67 kW DC roof mounted solar energy panels and upgrades to ENERGY STAR labeled studio equipment to reduce electric consumption. The mounting of solar panels on the south facing slope of the studio roof will provide renewable energy for operations and future sustainability of WXZY. Replacing certain pieces of aging equipment with newer ENERGY STAR rated equipment will further reduce demand on the energy grid. WXZY plays an important role in the community, as a source for up-to-date weather information from real meteorologists, news, local sports broadcasts and live community remote broadcasts from events around the area.
