Michigan and Wisconsin have both introduced community solar legislation, banking on the success that neighboring Minnesota has had with community installations.
The 20 MW O’Brien Solar Fields are helping local governments and businesses meet their renewable energy goals, as MGE turns its focus towards a proposed 300 MW solar project with a 165 MW battery.

The Earth Day decisions allows the utility to move forward with six solar facilities with a combined capacity of 675 MW and a price tag of more than $880 million.
The six projects would range in size from 50 to 100 MW and would almost double the state’s current installed solar capacity.
We Energies, Wisconsin Public Service, and Madison Gas and Electric want to add 325 MW of solar+storage, building on earlier plans to add a 310 MW project.
The Midwest Renewable Energy Association alleges that uncertainty about leases and power purchase agreements hurts the state’s solar industry.
