Xcel Energy recently announced that construction of the second
Solar Connect Community project is underway.
The solar garden, part of Wisconsin’s largest community solar garden program, is being built on about seven-acres of land near Highway 33 just west of Cashton.
The first of three community solar gardens began generating clean, renewable energy in October 2017 in Eau Claire and now La Crosse area subscribers will have community solar just down the road.
Xcel Energy is also moving forward with a third and final garden in Ashland, which is expected to be built in 2019. The Cashton area garden is expected to be in service in early 2019.
