Wisconsin utilities are jointly planning to build up 625 MW worth of combined solar and energy storage capacity in the state.
We Energies and Wisconsin Public Service, both subsidiaries of the WEC Energy Group, are proposing the 325-MW Darien Solar Energy Center and storage project in Rock and Walworth counties. The $446 million site would feature 250 MW of solar generation and linked to 75 MW of battery storage.
Last month, the companies announced plans for the 310-MW Paris Solar-Battery Park. If approved, the $426 million Paris project will be built in Kenosha County, Wisconsin.
