groSolarCMS EnergyDairyland Power Cooperative, and Price Electric Cooperative recently announced the commercial operation of a new 3.4 megawatt (MW DC) Flambeau Solar project located in Flambeau, Wisconsin.

The collaborative project is predicted to produce an estimated 5,000 megawatt (MWh) of renewable energy in the first year of operation, or the equivalent amount of electricity to power more than 600 homes. In addition, Flambeau Solar provides a variety of environmental benefits, including a carbon offset roughly equivalent to planting more than 90,000 trees or taking more than 700 cars off the road annually. The project also offers a high level of efficiency among similar endeavors in the solar industry through the use of single-axis trackers that follow the sun from east to west throughout the day.

Myles Burnsed, groSolar Vice President of Business Development, commented:

“The Flambeau project is an excellent example of a public-private partnership that is delivering clean, renewable, low cost energy to Price Electric and the Dairyland Power Cooperative system.”

groSolar will host a Flambeau Solar project dedication on August 3rd. The company will welcome partners from CMS Energy, Dairyland Power Cooperative, Price Electric Cooperative, and local stakeholders at the event.

 “CMS Energy is pleased to support the development of new solar energy in the Midwest,” said Richard Mukhtar, Executive Manager – CMS Enterprises for CMS Energy, which owns the Flambeau Solar project. “We look forward to seeing this solar power plant create energy that will power homes reliably and sustainably.”
