  • Dairyland Announces Three More Solar Energy Sites (April 19, 2018)
    Dairyland Power Cooperative has finalized agreements for three additional utility-scale solar generation projects, bringing Dairylandís total number of solar installations under contract to 18. The three new projects will increase the total solar generation from 20.5 MW to 25 MW in the Dairyland cooperative system. Once the three new solar energy facilities are online, the 18 sites will together be able to produce enough renewable energy to power nearly 4,000 homes. The power purchase agreements for the new projects are with SoCore Energy (Chicago, Ill.). Of the previously announced solar sites, 14 of 15 are with SoCore Energy and one agreement is with EDF Renewables (White River Junction, Vt.). The developers install, own, operate and maintain the facilities. Dairylandís existing 15 solar energy sites are located in Wisconsin and Iowa. The new sites will be located in Illinois, Iowa and Minnesota, within Dairylandís service territory. Construction will begin later this year.
