Two Creeks Solar Halfway Complete

Chairman, President and CEO Jeff Keebler at Two Creeks Solar groundbreaking, August 2019

Construction of the 150-megawatt (MW) Two Creeks Solar project in Manitowoc County, Wis., is now halfway complete. As of late July, more than 250,000 solar panels were in place. When construction is completed later this year, the state's first large-scale solar facility will feature 500,000 panels and produce enough energy to power more than 33,000 Wisconsin homes.

Madison Gas and Electric (MGE) owns 50 MW of the project. Wisconsin Public Service (WPS), a subsidiary of WEC Energy Group, owns 100 MW. Nearly a year ago, MGE and MGE Energy Chairman, President and CEO Jeff Keebler joined Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, representatives from WPS and NextEra Energy, and local officials to celebrate the official groundbreaking of Two Creeks Solar. 

The project is expected to begin generating electricity by the end of this year.
