Wisconsin’s First Community Solar Project Under Way

The Vernon Electric Cooperative (VEC) is partnering with Clean Energy Collective (CEC), a national community solar developer, on the first community-owned utility-scale solar project in Wisconsin. Located at their headquarters in Westby, WI any member in VECs territory will have the opportunity to own individual panels in the PV array and credit for the power produced will be provided directly on their monthly utility bills.   The 305 kW solar farm will consist of 1001 panels.  The project will break ground this month and is expected to be operational by early summer.
