Community solar gardens continue to grow in Wisconsin. On Jan. 4, Xcel Energy announced plans to develop a third, one-megawatt solar garden in Ashland. The garden will be part of Solar*Connect Community, Wisconsin’s largest community solar garden program.

If sufficient customer interest is demonstrated, the Ashland garden will be built in 2019 by OneEnergy Renewables, a leading developer of community and utility-scale solar projects across the country. The solar garden will be located on property near Xcel Energy’s Ashland service center. . .
