Alliant Energy customers are now receiving clean power from Wisconsin's largest solar facility.

The 2.3-megawatt Rock River solar project recently went into service near Beloit, Wis. The sun-powered generating station includes over 7,700 solar panels, covers nearly 17 acres and produces enough electricity to power 500 homes.

"Investments in clean energy have been central to our plan for decades," said Patricia Kampling, Alliant Energy Chairman, President and CEO. "Solar is an important part of our future energy mix, and one of many ways we are following a path of sustainability and stewardship."

The Rock River solar project is located on Alliant Energy's property in the Town of Beloit, and it is sited on a landfill, a further environmental benefit. The company collaborated with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to enable the landfill site to be reused for the solar facility.

Alliant Energy signed a 10-year power purchase agreement with Hanwha Q CELLS USA, which owns and operates the project that includes an option to purchase the facility at the end of the contract.

Alliant Energy Corporation (NYSE: LNT), headquartered in Madison, Wis., provides regulated electric and natural gas service to 950,000 electric and 410,000 natural gas customers across Iowa and Wisconsin. Alliant Energy's mission is to deliver the energy solutions and exceptional service customers and communities count on – safely, efficiently and responsibly. Interstate Power and Light Company and Wisconsin Power and Light Company are Alliant Energy's two public utility subsidiaries. Alliant Energy Corporation is a component of the S&P 500.
