SUPERIOR, Wisc. — Groundbreaking has taken place for Superior’s first community solar garden along Hammond Avenue.
Superior Water, Light and Power will refer to space as Superior Sun to mark this renewable energy cycle. At 470 kilowatts, Superior Solar will be large enough to power more than 100 homes. Project managers will rely on local labor and Minnesota-made solar panels.
Project manager Joscelyn Scandel said: “Any customer interested in participating in solar energy can subscribe to the garden. Then, after they subscribe to the garden, the solar energy generated through the garden loans is offset against the actual customer’s account.”
This project has been under development since 2018 and is expected to produce energy by the summer of 2023. As most subscriptions fill up quickly, there are still some spaces available in the 1 kilowatt block.
