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.

The proposed Yellow Pine Solar Project, southeast of Pahrump near the California border, would combine PV panels and lithium-ion batteries to generate up to 500 MW of electricity.
The Gemini Solar Project, 25 miles northeast of Las Vegas, would generate up to 690 MW with some battery storage on about 7,100 acres of public land near the Valley of Fire State Park.
Gemini is a joint venture by Australia's Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners and California-based Arevia Power, which plan to develop 440 MW of solar capacity for use in Nevada in the first phase of development. Another 250 MW of generating capacity would be added in the second phase, with the power to be sold in Nevada or exported to Arizona and California.

Xcel Energy's proposal consists of two new wind farms, which will generate most of the new power, but also includes a 30-year PPA with NextEra Energy Resources through which the company will acquire energy from other wind facilities in Texas.
The two new farms are estimated to cost $1.6 billion to construct and are anticipated to save Texas and New Mexico customers $2.8 billion over a 30-year period. The two new facilities, which are expected to come online in 2023, will generate sufficient electric power for more than 360,000 homes annually.
SRP will purchase all of the energy produced at the plant, which is owned and operated by a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources.
SRP, which aims to meet 20 pct of its retail electricity requirements through sustainable resources by 2020, is on schedule to meet that goal by utilizing solar, wind, geothermal and hydro power and energy-efficiency measures. SRP also aims to reduce the amount of carbon emissions intensity by 33 pct by 2035, according to a company statement.
