The Rock River solar project is located on Alliant Energy's property in the Town of Beloit, and it is sited on a landfill, a further environmental benefit. The company collaborated with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to enable the landfill site to be reused for the solar facility.
Alliant Energy signed a 10-year power purchase agreement with Hanwha Q CELLS USA, which owns and operates the project that includes an option to purchase the facility at the end of the contract.
