Milwaukee to turn closed landfill into large solar project
The Common Council in Milwaukee recently approved a project that will transform 8 acres of a closed landfill into a 2.25-megawatt solar array. The project, which will be part of We Energies’ Solar Now pilot program, will be the city’s largest solar panel project in the city’s history, according to a report by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The project is expected to include more than 7,000 solar panels, which will generate energy to power more than 460 homes.
