LAKE HALLIE, Wis. (WEAU) – Construction is set to begin on a new solar project in Lake Hallie this summer.

One Energy Renewables and Solarshare Wisconsin Cooperative are looking to build a solar array in a former farm field at the intersection of 143rd Street and 40th Avenue.

The 26 acres of solar panels will provide power for more than 1,300 homes–about half the homes in Lake Hallie.

The organizations held an open house today for residents interested in investing to learn more about the project.

“It’s really exciting to be in the midst of this renewable energy revolution. It’s also excitign to start producing our own energy in the state, Wisconsin imports a lot of coal and natural gas for its energy. Now we can just look to our back yard to see what we’re producing for ourselves,” said Cory Neeley, Executive Director of Solarshare Wisconsin Cooperative.

Neeley said they will be breaking ground on the project in June and hope to have everything operational by the end of the year.
