WI EXPLORING LARGE SOLAR FARM

WI EXPLORING LARGE SOLAR FARM

State utilities and environmental groups are coming together to support a solar energy project, but regulators and consumer advocates remain skeptical. 

Madison Gas & Electric and Wisconsin Public Service Corp. are proposing to buy 300 megawatts’ worth of solar panels in a rural, southwestern part of the state.  The 2700-acre solar farm would be Wisconsin’s first large-scale solar project and among the largest in the country.  The executive director of the Citizens Utility Board, Tom Content, says customer costs are top of mind, noting that “our risk is all up front, but our payoff could be questionable down the road.”
