Florida’s NextEra is a juggernaut among renewable energy developers, and right now there is no force that can stop them. So far the company has made plans to deliver:
- The first DC coupled utility scale energy storage system in the US.
- The largest (for now) in operation utility scale solar plus energy storage system in the US.
- 74.5 MWAC pollinator-friendly solar power projects across Florida.
- The Largest lithium ion energy storage bids on the planet.
- Beautiful solar+storage+trackers in the Arizona desert
- And announced yesterday, 300 MW-AC of solar plus 300 MWh of energy storage.
Not to mention that the company’s 2.75 GW solar panel contract with JinkoSolar is spurring a new factory. And now we add to the list 300 MW of new solar power in Wisconsin.
The first project, Badger Hollow Solar Farm, would be located in southwestern Wisconsin in Iowa County, about 12 miles west of Dodgeville. Wisconsin Public Service will own 100 MW of this plant and Madison Gas and Electric (MGE) the remaining 50 MW. The project is being developed by Invenergy in collaboration with NextEra.
The Two Creeks solar project would be located in the Town of Two Creeks and the City of Two Rivers in northeastern Wisconsin, near the Point Beach Nuclear Power Plant. Wisconsin Public Service will own 100 MW and MGE 50 MW of Two Creeks. The project is being developed by a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources.
The total cost of both projects is expected to be approximately $390 million.
If approved by the end of 2018, construction of both projects is expected to begin by spring 2019. Both projects are expected to be online by the end of 2020.
