CHARLESTON TOWNSHIP — Producing 225,592 kilowatt hours of electricity in its first year of operation, a solar farm in eastern Kalamazoo Coun*ty that went online in early 2010 has exceeded expectations.
Also exceeding expecta*tions is the property tax, said Sam Field, a Kalamazoo attor*ney and one of the owners of Kalamazoo Solar.
The $27,689 tax bill for the Charleston Township prop*erty means that the owners are losing money, even when being paid a premium price of 45 cents a kilowatt hour by Consumers Energy, he said.
