Community solar brings together people with a common interest to power their community with solar energy. By subscribing, your efforts will go toward increasing the amount of clean energy in your region’s power grid.

The Alliant Energy® Community Solar program is now available to our Wisconsin customers with the opening of our Fond du Lac solar project. Don’t miss this limited opportunity to power your home with clean, hassle-free renewable energy.

Community solar is a way to tap into solar energy and savings without having anything on your property. Now almost anyone can use clean energy and reduce their carbon footprint, whether you live in a house, condo, apartment, or farm. Not a residential customer? Learn about community solar options for businesses.

With the Alliant Energy® Community Solar program, we build, own and maintain a dedicated solar site on your behalf. Your investment in a portion of the electricity provided from the community solar arrays means you’ll receive ongoing monthly bill credits for the next 20 years. And the best part – you can purchase blocks of solar to cover up to 100% of your energy use.

Community Solar quick facts

Getting started

Community solar is available to Wisconsin electric customers on a first-come, first-served basis. Participation is easy.

Step 1

Use this calculator to determine the number of 250-watt solar energy producing blocks you need. You can purchase a subscription for up to 100% of your energy use.

Step 2

Sign up. Once you determine the number of solar blocks you need, complete the Alliant Energy® Community Solar subscriber form. 

Step 3

Make payment for the block(s) all at once or spread the amount over a 12-month period at no extra cost. Each 250-watt block costs $375, plus a one-time $25 administration fee. Here’s what your bill will look like. 

Step 4

Receive a credit on your bill each month for up to 20 years. The credit is based on solar production – sunnier days mean a larger credit. Bill credit begins when the upfront subscription fee is paid in full, and the solar site is generating energy. See some bill credit estimates.
