MUSKOGEE, Okla. — The City of Muskogee and ArrowPoint Solar are kicking off a project that would upgrade the Muskogee Civic Center to a solar power system.

The goal of the 892 new solar panels is to reduce utility-sourced electricity and advance sustainable energy practices, according to arena officials.

“Last year, we upgraded the building to LED light system and today, we start the solar panel project, reassuring the City of Muskogee commitment to sustainable energy," said John Cruz, general manager for the Muskogee Civic Center. "It is another opportunity to market our facility to the entertainment industry.”

Kelly Hoyt, project manager of ArrowPoint Solar, said the upgrade should be completed by Dec. 14 if the weather permits.
