Dairyland Power Cooperative agreed to purchase power from Ranger Power's proposed 149-MW Badger State Solar Farm in Jefferson County, Wis.
The co-op did not disclose the length of the power purchase agreement. Pending approval, the parties expect to begin construction in 2020 and place the project into commercial operation in 2022.
"Resource diversification is foundational to Dairyland's commitment to a sustainable, future-facing power supply," Dairyland President and CEO Barbara Nick said in March 18 statement.
La Crosse, Wis.-headquartered Dairyland Power provides wholesale electricity to 24 member distribution cooperatives and 17 municipal utilities in four states.
