Help make the Koshkonong Solar Energy Center a reality!
Imagine a Wisconsin where coal and gas-fired power plants are a thing of the past and instead, we rely on our own home-grown clean energy! The Koshkonong Solar Energy Center, proposed in the Towns of Christiana and Deerfield in Dane County is an important step toward that clean energy future.
The Public Service Commission is currently reviewing this project which has been the focus of some vocal opposition. Your support is needed and can make a difference! Public hearings will be hosted virtually on Zoom, Thursday, January 20th; one at 2:00 pm and one at 6:00 pm.
The Koshkonong Solar Energy Center will:
- Provide enough energy to power 60,000 homes (a quarter of the households in Dane County)
- Cut carbon emissions by 15-20 million tons over its lifetime
- Generate $1.2 million in local tax revenue per year
- Provide supplemental income to farmers through land-lease agreements
- Reduce agricultural pollution runoff into local waterways like Koshkonong Creek
- Provide deep-rooted prairie habitat for pollinators including Wisconsin’s endangered rusty patch bumblebee
Help make this solar project a reality by speaking at the public hearing or submitting a written comment to the Public Service Commission, and show your support of a clean energy transition in Wisconsin.
