The Paris Solar Energy Center is a 200 megawatt project proposed in Kenosha County, Wisconsin. The project will supply home-grown, affordable, emission-free electricity to 55,000 homes. If approved, the Paris Solar Energy Center would more than double the solar generating capacity we have operating in Wisconsin today. Paris Solar would begin producing clean power by 2022.

Subject: Regarding Docket 9801-CE-100 – Paris Solar Energy Center
Dear Public Service Commission:
As residents of Wisconsin, we ask you to approve the Paris Solar Energy Center. The project will be a critical step in further advancing affordable, clean energy in Wisconsin.
Wisconsin electric utilities are retiring fossil fuel power plants, and creating space for new renewable generators to fill in the gaps. The Paris Solar Energy Center is being developed by Invenergy, the company that developed the Badger Hollow Solar Farm (300 megawatts) currently under construction in Wisconsin. This new project, Paris Solar, will have the capacity to generate low-cost, emission-free electricity for 55,000 Wisconsin homes.
The Energy Priorities Law, adopted in 1994, states that “[i]t is the goal of the state that, to the extent that it is cost-effective and technically feasible, all new installed capacity for electric generation in the state be based on renewable energy resources ….” Wis Stats. 1.12(3)(b). The Paris Solar Energy Center easily satisfies those two conditions and will significantly expand renewable energy generation in Wisconsin.
Please approve this project in accordance with the Energy Priorities Law.
