The latest solar energy project in Sheboygan County broke ground on Thursday. A more than 200 kW field of solar panels is being built on the 38-1/2 acre campus of the Sheboygan Senior Community on County Highway “Y” in the Town of Sheboygan. A partnership between the Sheboygan Senior Community, Legacy Solar Co-Op, Arch Electric of Plymouth and the Clean Energy Program of Lakeshore Technical College. The project was made possible by grants including one for nearly a quarter million dollars ($242,581) from Wisconsin’s Office of Energy Innovation, which will use the project as a template for other nonprofits in Wisconsin switching to solar. Another $25,000 grant was received from Solar for Good, with the remainder funded through a tax sponsor.
