HMV says the 1 MW photovoltaic project will be the state's first solar energy facility that directly connects to the power grid, and it will help meet Wisconsin's renewable portfolio standard goal of 10% of energy production by 2015.

WPPI Energy has agreed to purchase output from the project. The wholesale power supplier serves Jefferson Utilities, the community's municipally owned utility, as well as 50 other locally owned, not-for-profit utilities in Wisconsin, Michigan and Iowa.
