Local developer seeks second project

The developer of the solar farm proposed in western Iowa County is planning for a second project in Kenosha County, it was announced this week Invenergy, which has its corporate offices in Chicago, filed an engineering plan for a 200 megawa solar farm with a 50 megawatt battery component. The proposed project is larger than any battery in use on the nation's power grid and will be the first in Wisconsin.
Invenergy has installed 31.5 megawatt batteries in Illinois and West Virginia. Those batteries account for most of the capacity in the company's advanced storage portfolio. Batteries enable renewable energy sources like wind and solar to deliver power on demand.
Invenergy is the developer behind the Badger Hollow solar farm project here and is under consideration by the Public Service Commission. The company wants to sell half of the project to Madison Gas & Electric and Wisconsin Public Service Corp.
Grid operators are studying more than two dozen solar projects in Wisconsin with a combined capacity of 4600 megawatts which is more than any other state in the midwest.
