In winter 2016, we began providing energy from the 2.3-megawatt Rock River solar project through a 10-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Hanwha Q Cells USA. The solar field is located on our closed Rock River Generating Station landfill site in the town of Beloit.
The solar installation is the first in Wisconsin permitted by the DNR on a closed landfill site. It represents another step in modernizing our town of Beloit energy campus. When the facility went into service, it was the largest solar generating station in Wisconsin.
