Bayfield County Makes Commitment to Xcel’s Ashland Solar Garden

The Bayfield County Board committed to 19% ownership of Xcel Energy’s Ashland Solar Garden (see EOW News Jan 2018). The County will purchase the equivalent of 613 panels generating credits estimated at $20,000 a year for the next 25 years. The project requires no maintenance by the county, supports renewable energy, and supports economic development in the region.
