WPPI Energy, a not-for-profit, regional power company and NextEra Energy Resources, a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Inc. (NYSE: NEE) are planning to construct a 100-megawatt solar energy centre.

The facility has a capacity to serve more than 23,000 people with affordable, clean energy.

WPPI Energy has signed a 20-year power purchase agreement to purchase the electricity from the solar energy centre to serve its 51 member utilities and their customers across Wisconsin, Upper Michigan and Iowa. NextEra Energy Resources plans to construct and operate the Point Beach Solar Energy Center on land adjacent to its present Point Beach Nuclear Plant in Two Rivers. The project is to create 150-200 jobs during its construction period, which typically lasts six to nine months. The facility is scheduled to be operational in 2021.
