Appx. 475 kilowatt hours/year
The solar array is located at the intersection of Richland County Highway A and Wisconsin State Highway 56, adjacent to the Richland Electric Cooperative Ash Ridge Substation.
Approximately 188,000 kilowatt hours a year. This amount can vary based on the available sunshine in any year.
A program where members own solar generated power at a common 'community' location. The energy created at the community solar project offsets their usage at their home or business.
Participating members can offset their own usage with solar generated energy without the need for solar panels at their home or business. Plus, if utility rates increase, the value of your solar energy will increase.
There are over 2300 panels at the Ash Ridge Site but 1980 of these panels are part of the Dairyland Power Cooperative Utility Scale Solar project. 396 panels are available to the Transition Energy subscribers of Richland Electric Cooperative members.
Between 900,000 and a million kilowatt hours. This is enough electricity to power over 80 average homes in the Richland service area.
The Ash Ridge projected was completed in 2016 and has been producing wonderfully ever since!
