Alliant Energy completes 50-MW North Rock Solar Project

Alliant Energy has announced the completion of its 50 MW North Rock Solar Project, benefitting the community of Fulton in Rock County, Wisconsin, which is expected to receive approximately $6 million in combined shared revenue payments, alongside the impact of new solar energy.

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.

“The jobs and economic impact created by this project have already benefited our community” said Rock County Board Supervisor Connie Winter. “Alliant Energy went to great lengths to work with us and deliver a project that we can all be proud of. When you consider the additional local revenue and future growth potential that a site like this creates, we’re really fortunate to be at the forefront of Wisconsin’s energy transformation.”

More than 100 local operating engineers, carpenters, labourers and electricians contributed to the construction of the project, increasing its impact on the local economy. Construction began in August 2021 and was completed ahead of schedule.

Less than 25 miles from the North Rock Solar site, Alliant Energy is also developing 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. Following plans laid out in its Clean Energy Blueprint, Alliant Energy’s combined 12 utility scale projects will create more than 2,000 local construction jobs, provide an estimated $130 million in local tax revenues over the next 30 years and help customers avoid more than $1.6 billion in long-term costs.
