GRANT COUNTY SOLAR PROJECT

About the Project

The Grant County Solar Project is an innovative solar project in Grant County, Wisconsin that was developed and is being built by a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources and is owned by Alliant Energy. Once operational, it will generate up to 200 megawatts of clean, renewable, American-made energy, enough electricity to power more than 50,000 Wisconsin homes.

The Grant Count Solar project is more than solar panels - it represents a significant capital investment in the Town of Potosi and Grant County. The project is creating hundreds of jobs during construction. Once operational, the community and county will receive a combined, estimated $800,000 in annual shared revenues for the next 30 years, to be used as determined by local communities and government officials.
