Here’s the impact it’s expected to have.

Sheboygan County’s solar farm is among several recently completed projects in Wisconsin, bolstering Alliant Energy’s renewable footprint.

TOWN OF HOLLAND — Alliant Energy’s 1,000-acre solar project is now in service in the town of Holland, after several years of planning and building.

Construction on the $200 million Onion River Solar Project, with an estimated capacity to power about 40,000 homes, finished in mid-December, according to company spokesperson Tony Palese, following groundbreaking in summer 2022.

The solar farm also has about 40 acres of native grass for pollinators, too. At its peak, the project created about 300 local jobs. Alliant estimates the Onion River project could generate about $18 million over 30 years.
