WPPI Energy, the member-owned energy supplier that serves Two Rivers and 50 other communities in Wisconsin, Iowa and Michigan's Upper Peninsula (representing 200,000+ customers), has made a long-term commitment to purchase power from a new 100 megawatt solar facility to be built and operated by NextEra Energy, near the Point Beach Nuclear Plant.
Combined with other non carbon-emitting power sources like nuclear, wind, biogas and hydro, this investment here in our backyard will help WPPI Energy achieve a 37 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions (2005 baseline) by 2025.
WPPI Energy currently purchases 117 megawatts of output from the Point Beach Nuclear Plant.
The Point Beach Solar Center will be the second major solar installation constructed just up the road from Two Rivers. Groundbreaking was held in August for the 150 megawatt Two Creeks Solar Park, a joint project of Wisconsin Public Service and Madison Gas and Electric,
