Paris Solar Energy Center has announced the hiring of Frank Krupkowski as the local representative for the project — a proposed solar development located in the town of Paris in Kenosha County.
Paris Solar is being developed by Invenergy, a privately held developer and operator of sustainable energy solutions.
The Midwest-based company is also the developer of the recently approved Badger Hollow Solar Farm in Iowa County.
The Paris Solar project is expected to produce enough clean, renewable energy to power 55,000 Wisconsin homes per year and directly invest more than $3 million in the local economy every year.
Krupkowski has lived and worked in Kenosha County for the last 30 years. He has been president of the Greater Union Grove Area Chamber of Commerce and he has been involved with the Union Grove and Kansasville fire departments and 4-H. He also served as a trustee on the Union Grove Village Board.
Paris Solar will host a grand opening celebration for the project office later this month.
Krupkowski will hold regular office hours on Monday and Tuesday from 8 a.m. to noon as well as by appointment at the office, 1013 Main St., Union Grove.
He can also be reached at Frank@parissolarfarm.com or 262-864-4103.
