About this open house
Travois is happy to join the National Solar Tour with an open house in conjunction with our October 4, First Friday artist exhibit, featuring North American Indigenous artist, Mona Cliff, (travois.com/news-events/first-fridays).
Our 330 panel, 75-kilowatt system is supported on a steel structure above our rooftop deck. The system was installed in 2012 and shortly after the roof top deck and play area was built below. The deck features an incredible view of downtown Kansas City and the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts just past a community garden space. Travois uses the rooftop for alternate outdoor office workspace, social gatherings, place to have lunch, yoga, and as a place for the children in the daycare group to play.
We are happy to feature Homoly Construction, SunSource, MRIGlobal, Sierra Club, Battery Tour, and Westside Housing in our brief program
