Kloss Distributing's solar power system now operational

Posted1/26/2021 3:14 PM

GURNEE -- Residents of Lake County can drink a little greener in 2021 thanks to the solar installation that now powers Kloss Distributing in Gurnee. Kloss Distributing moves 4 million cases of beer, wine and soft drinks to 1,500 locations across Lake County each year -- and with its new installation fully activated, all of the company's electricity is now generated by the solar panels that cover Kloss' warehouse roof.

Kloss Distributing expects the solar installation to save the company $70,000 per year in electric costs.


Kloss partnered with General Energy Corp. to provide a turnkey solar solution that covered 100% of the company's electric needs. GEC designed and installed the solar system, managed the connection to the electric grid, and trained Kloss staff on the operation of the system.
