Wisc. PSC Considering Proposed Solar Projects (Ind. Report)
Wisconsin Public Service Commission
Date: 2019-12-02
The Wisconsin Public Service Commission (WPSC) reports it is considering the fate of the proposed 150-MW Two Creeks and 300-MW Badger Hollow solar farms that, if built, would more than quadruple the state's solar capacity.

The proposed $390 million projects, which are being reviewed by grid operator MISO, would be developed by energy companies Invenergy and NextEra Energy Resources. Two utilities -- MGE Energy in the Madison area and Wisconsin Public Service Corp. in the Green Bay area -- are seeking to purchase all of the proposed solar project's total power production.

The proposed Badger Hollow solar farm developed by Chicago-based Invenergy would incorprorate 1.2 million solar panels covering about 2,500 acres of farmland in Iowa County in central Wisconsin. The 150-MW Two Creeks solar farm would run by NextEra. (Source: WPSC, Energy News Network, SDD, 30 Nov., 2019) Contact: Wisconsin Public Service Commission, (608) 266-5481,
