Beaver Dam Solar Project Moving Along Nicely

(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Solar Project is moving along quite nicely. In a quarterly construction update from Alliant Energy, they say that civil sitework has begun including setting up the laydown area, building roads, and site grading. During construction, bulldozers, scrapers, and graders will be doing most of the work the first few months. Then pile drivers will install 15-foot piles into the ground which will help anchor the solar panels.

The 50-megawatt Beaver Dam Solar Project is in Dodge County and is part of Alliant Energy’s Clean Energy Blueprint. The project is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2023.
