Xcel Energy Proposes Wisconsin’s Largest Community Solar Program

Thousands of Xcel Energy customers in western and northern
Wisconsin could now have a choice for accessing locally sourced
solar energy through a program proposed to the Public Service
Commission of Wisconsin. If approved, Solar*Connect Community
would become the largest community solar energy program in
Wisconsin. Under the program, Xcel Energy would purchase up to
three megawatts (3,000 kilowatts) of electricity from local
community solar arrays in the company’s service area in western
and northern Wisconsin. Customers would in turn subscribe for
capacity to meet their desired solar energy needs and receive a
monthly credit for their subscription.
“Our customers are increasingly interested in solar energy and
in helping support projects right here in Wisconsin,” said Mark
Stoering, President, NSP-Wisconsin, an Xcel Energy company.
“Solar*Connect Community gives all of our customers an option
to access locally sourced solar using the most advanced and
efficient technologies available,” he said.
