Alliant Energy customers are now receiving clean power from Wisconsin’s largest solar facility. The 2.3-megawatt Rock River solar project recently went into service near Beloit, Wis. The sun-powered generating station includes over 7,700 solar panels, covers nearly 17 acres and produces enough electricity to power 500 homes.
“Investments in clean energy have been central to our plan for decades,” said Patricia Kampling, Alliant Energy Chairman, President and CEO. “Solar is an important part of our future energy mix, and one of many ways we are following a path of sustainability and stewardship.”
