Two energy companies want to build new solar farms in Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A pair of energy companies is asking state regulators for permission to build two new solar farms in Wisconsin.

Chicago-based Invenergy and Florida-based NextEra Energy Resources asked the Public Service Commission Thursday for permission to build the farms at a cost of about $390 million.

Invenergy wants to build in Iowa County. NextEra wants to build in Two Creeks and Two Rivers. According to the commission, the farms will have the capacity to generate a combined 300 megawatts at any time. Renewable energy advocacy group Renew Wisconsin says that's enough electricity to run 67,000 homes for a year.

Wisconsin Public Service Corporation and Madison Gas and Electric would purchase the energy.

PSC spokesman Matthew Spencer says the commission is reviewing the applications. It's unclear when a decision might come.
