Supporting Home Grown Energy: Koshkonong Solar Energy Center

Imagine a different Wisconsin. One where coal and methane gas-fired power plants are a thing of the past. Instead, we rely on our own home-grown clean energy. The Koshkonong Solar Energy Center is a first step toward that clean energy future.

Koshkonong Solar will:

Provide enough energy to power 60,000 homes – a quarter of the households Dane County

Reduce carbon emissions by 15-20 million tons over its life

Generate $1.2 million in local tax revenue every year

Reduce agricultural pollution runoff into already impaired local waterways like Koshkonong Creek

Provide deep-rooted prairie habitat among the solar arrays for pollinators, including Wisconsin’s endangered rusty patch bumblebee
