Westby (WI) 305-kW Community Solar Array - Sold Out

July 2014 - As of June 1, 2014, output from the 305-kilowatt Vernon Electric Community Solar Farm began supplying renewable energy to the citizens of Westby, WI. The solar farm was built by Vernon Electric Cooperative (VEC) in partnership with Colorado-based Clean Energy Collective. After taking advantage of federal tax credits and a $71 rebate provided by the VEC, the cost of ownership was reduced to $600 per 305-watt panel or about $2 per watt. The solar farm became operational June 1 and sold out 1,001 panels in just over two weeks.
