Two Creeks Solar Park

WPS is the majority owner and operator of Two Creeks Solar Park, a 150-megawatt (MW) solar generation facility located in the towns of Two Creeks and Two Rivers, Wisconsin. The facility made history Nov. 2, 2020, becoming the first utility-scale solar park to begin operations in Wisconsin.

Project details

Two Creeks Solar Park features approximately 500,000 solar panels spread across 800 acres near the shores of Lake Michigan. The facility is capable of producing 150 MW of solar generation, which is equal to powering 45,000 homes. WPS and Madison Gas and Electric (MGE) are joint owners of Two Creeks Solar Park.

Two Creeks Solar Park produces affordable, reliable and clean energy throughout the year. The park's solar panels are attached to tracking systems that rotate the panels to follow the path of the sun from sunrise to sunset. A network of inverters and cables collect and transfer the energy to the electric grid, where it is distributed to homes and businesses across our service area.

Two Creeks Solar Park is an important part of WPS and its parent company WEC Energy Group's commitment to building a bright, sustainable future. From 2021-2025, WEC Energy Group is investing nearly $2 billion in new solar, wind and battery storage facilities in Wisconsin. These investments are part of the company's commitment to reduce carbon emissions 60% by 2025 and 80% by the end of 2030, below 2005 levels. WEC Energy Group's longer-term goal is to make its electric generation fleet net carbon neutral by 2050.

In addition to Two Creeks Solar Park, WPS is co-owner of Badger Hollow Solar Park, a 300-MW solar generation facility in southwestern Wisconsin. WPS also owns or operates utility-scale wind parks in Wisconsin and Iowa.
