Major Rock County solar project complete

Alliant Energy announced the completion of its 50-megawatt (MW) North Rock Solar Project in the rural community of Fulton in Rock County. Over the life of the solar facility, the town of Fulton and Rock County are expected to receive approximately $6 million in combined shared revenue payments.

With nearly 120,000 solar panels spanning 473 acres, the North Rock Solar Project can generate enough zero-fuel-cost electricity to power approximately 13,000 homes. It is the third utility-scale solar site Alliant Energy completed this year as part of its Clean Energy Blueprint to deliver more sustainable, reliable, and cost-effective energy to customers. With the completion of the North Rock Solar site, along with the previously announced Wood County and Bear Creek solar projects, Alliant Energy is now the largest owner-operator of solar generation in Wisconsin.

Less than 25 miles from the North Rock Solar site, Alliant Energy is also advancing the Albany Solar (50 MW) and Paddock Solar (65 MW) projects that the company expects to complete and place into service by the end of 2023.
