Work has begun on Wisconsin’s first stand-alone utility-scale solar energy project. Located in the city of Jefferson, the project is expected to begin by the end of 2013. It will be the state’s first solar energy project directly connecting to the power grid.
Once in service, this project will help Wisconsin’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) goal of 10% of the power coming from renewable sources by 2015. Located in the city’s business park, the project will generate more than 1.5 million kilowatt hours of clean energy per year, which means it can power about 150 homes in Wisconsin.
If you want to know more about this and other topics directly from end users of energy storage technologies join us at one of these annual events: The Energy Storage World Forum (Grid Scale Applications), or The Residential Energy Storage Forum, or one of our Training Courses.
