Dane County Regional Airport Solar

One of the largest solar projects in Wisconsin will be located on 57 acres at the Dane County Regional Airport. More than 20,000 solar panels will generate 9 megawatts of renewable electricity— enough to meet 25% of the electricity used by all county-owned facilities. Madison Gas and Electric (MGE) will own the solar system, which will be installed on land rented from the County. The solar farm will also double as a habitat for dwindling monarch and pollinator populations. Dane County currently owns more solar than any other public entity in the state.
