Dane County seeks solar partners

Dane County Executive Joe Parisi announced that the county is looking for partners to develop solar and wind farms across Wisconsin. RFPs will be issued in the coming days, and Dane County could become an investor.

The goal, according to a release, is to facilitate the development of projects that generate renewable electricity to offset the amount of energy used to run county operations.

Parisi recently made up to 40 acres of land at the Dane County Regional Airport available for solar.
