In 2016, Dairyland announced 15 major solar projects that will produce over 20 MW of renewable energy in the Dairyland cooperative system. These solar facilities have begun to come online in Wisconsin and Iowa. All are expected to be generating renewable energy by mid-summer 2017.

“Dairyland celebrated our 75th anniversary in 2016 and the 15 solar projects are an exciting example of our commitment to providing safe, reliable and sustainable energy far into the future,” said Barbara Nick, President and CEO.

Together, the solar facilities will be able to produce enough renewable energy to power over 3,000 homes.

The power purchase agreements for 14 of the solar projects are with SoCore Energy (Chicago, Ill.). One agreement is with groSolar (White River Junction, Vt.). The developers will install, own, operate and maintain the solar facilities.
