National Grid Company Geronimo Energy and Alliant Energy announced the sale of North Rock Solar in Rock County in Wisconsin to Alliant Energy. Geronimo Energy will continue development activities until regulatory approvals and other contractual commitments are complete, at which time Alliant Energy will acquire North Rock. North Rock will produce 50 megawatts of electricity, enough to power approximately 12,000 Wisconsin homes, and will contribute to Alliant's goal to build 1,000 MW of solar projects in Wisconsin by 2023. The 50 MW North Rock will be located in the town of Fulton, approximately 10 miles north of Janesville, and is estimated to have a footprint of 440 acres. The project is expected to begin construction in 2021, with anticipated completion in late 2022, and will bring positive economic benefits in the form of new tax revenue, local spending, and job creation to both local and state communities.

This project sale is included in a 6-county, 675 MW solar announcement made by Alliant Energy earlier today in Wisconsin. Once operational, the energy from the six projects will be enough to power 175,000 homes per year. The 675 MW solar announcement is part of Alliant Energy's Clean Energy Blueprint, which outlines their roadmap to accelerate renewable energy, while reducing carbon emissions.
