Organic Valley expands community solar scheme with 19 MW


October 8 (Solar) – Organic Valley, a US cooperative of organic farmers, last week said that a further 19 MW direct current (DC) of solar capacity will be built as part of a community solar partnership unveiled last year.

Organic Valley created the community solar partnership with the Upper Midwest Municipal Energy Group (UMMEG) and OneEnergy Renewables to construct over 12 MW of solar installations in Wisconsin and become 100% renewables-powered by 2019.

The 19 MW of additional capacity and Organic Valley's 12.3-MW DC project portfolio will result in a 33% increase in solar in the state of Wisconsin, according to the announcement.

Partners for the remaining renewable energy credits will be announced later in 2018, Organic Valley said.  

Soap brand Dr. Bronner's has joined the partnership and will buy renewable energy credits (RECs) to also become 100% renewables-powered.
