About Us

Green energy for a greener Baldwin City.

The City partnered with Evergy to install a solar field behind the Public Utilities Building at 1015 Orange Street, which was completed in September of 2019. The solar field adds to the City’s mix of green and renewable energy. Click here to check the energy output of the solar field.

"It’s a wonderful place to raise a family!"
"I’ve lived in Baldwin City two times over the years. The second time was because I knew this community was steeped in art and culture. For a town this size and so close to other, larger communities, it has its own identity."
-Melinda Hipple
"I can head out the door and can run, walk or bike in every direction. I often see deer, foxes, turtles, all kinds of birds, etc, and beautiful gardens and yards."
-Devon Mihesuah
