Commercial solar developer, Dragonfly Solar and SolarWorld, a solar manufacturer, will deliver solar arrays, totaling 517-kW to four electric utility cooperatives in the U.S. Midwest.
The solar array will be owned and managed by Minnesota-Three, an entity jointly owned by Freeborn-Mower Cooperative Services, People’s Energy Cooperative, and Tri-County Cooperative. Dairyland Power, the cooperative power wholesaler for the region, will purchase power produced.
Dairyland Power choose Dragonfly Solar to design, procure and construct the project. The installation will include more than 1,800 solar panels. Construction of the solar facility is expected to commence this spring in Oronoco, Minn.
Once completed, the array will be connected to People’s Energy Cooperative’s power delivery system.
Part of the project was funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Energy for America Program (REAP).
