Largest solar project in the state goes into full operation
BELOIT, Wis. – June 24, 2016 – Our Wisconsin customers are now receiving clean power from the Rock River solar project. The 2.3-megawatt solar facility went into service earlier this week. The sun-powered generating station includes over 7,700 solar panels and covers nearly 17 acres.
The project is located on our property near Beloit, Wis. and it sits on a landfill, a further environmental benefit. We collaborated with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to enable the landfill site to be reused for the solar facility.
Our company signed a 10-year power purchase agreement with Hanwha Q CELLS, which owns and operates the project that includes an option to purchase the facility at the end of the contract.
