The largest solar project built to date in Wisconsin is generating power, Alliant Energy Corp. said Friday. The project, installed atop a coal-ash landfill in the Town of Beloit, was built by Hanwha Q Cells for about $5 million. Alliant will buy electricity from the project for 10 years and has an option to purchase the solar system after that.
