Known as the O’Brien Solar Fields, the project will provide locally generated solar energy to local businesses, municipalities and public institutions under MGE’s Renewable Energy Rider (RER).

The array would help power the city of Fitchburg, the Wisconsin Department of Administration and a number of businesses through RER agreements.

RERs enable MGE to partner with a large energy user to tailor a renewable energy solution to meet that customer’s energy needs.

RER customers are responsible for costs associated with the renewable generation facility and any distribution costs to deliver energy to the customer.
