Solar arrays atop the J. E. Dunn Construction headquarters at 1001 Locust in downtown Kansas City, were installed in January 2012, and provide enough electricity to offset the usage of the building's cafeteria. The company says that in the 2.5 years since it installed the panels, it has saved more in energy costs than the panels cost, and actually paid the panels off (in energy savings) in less than half the time that had been estimated. The firm estimates that carbon emissions avoided currently total over 350,510 pounds and that the energy savings is approximately $20,100 (as of September 2014).
