(Lomira) The Public Service Commission has approved a solar farm project in northeastern Dodge County. The proposed Springfield Solar Project is a 100 mega-watt solar electric generating facility. The project is part of Alliant Energy’s plan to add over 400 megawatts of solar to Wisconsin as well as accelerate their initiative to transition to clean energy. National Grid Renewals is developing the project on 600 acres between Lomira and Brownsville. Alliant Energy is asking regulators to approve the purchase for $124-million dollars.
