Jones Dairy Farm Hosts New Solar Array – Generating Energy to Power 400+ Homes
A 12-acre solar energy field consisting of 7,128 solar panels was recently completed on Jones Dairy Farm property as part of Solar Now, an innovative We Energies program that produces clean, renewable energy for all customers.
Under the Solar Now pilot program approved by the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin, We Energies partners with large business, nonprofit and government customers from around the state of Wisconsin to host solar panels. Energy generated by the solar panels is redirected back to the community’s energy grid.
“As a long-standing Wisconsin-based family-owned company and community driven-business, participating in the Solar Now program to help do our part in reducing carbon emissions and providing clean, renewable energy was not only the right choice, but an easy decision to make,” said Philip Jones, 6th generation CEO and Chairman of Jones Dairy Farm.
According to We Energies, the solar panels located on the Jones Dairy Farm property can produce 2.25 megawatts (MW) — enough energy to power more than 400 homes. We Energies and its parent company WEC Energy Group have a goal to reduce carbon emissions from electricity generation 60% by 2025 and 80% by the end of 2030, compared to 2005 levels.
Jones Dairy Farm joins other Wisconsin-based partners like Harley-Davidson, University of Wisconsin — Parkside, the City of Racine, and Washington County in the Solar Now program.
