Organic Valley Co-op recently posted a blog article highlighting their recent solar PV installation. They highlight the “sweet spot” of community-scale solar and how it is has made it possible for their Wisconsin-based facilities to be 100% powered by renewables by the end of 2019.
The article also mentions how this form of more reliable and cheaper electric is creating jobs to stimulate the economy:
“Meaningful and good-paying jobs just don’t fall from the sky,” says Stanley Minnick, energy services manager for Organic Valley. “These projects, and others like them, create regular and meaningful work for dozens and dozens of solar professionals, like the hard-working folks from Arch Electric based out of Plymouth, Wisconsin. The people who brave the elements to bring these projects to life are putting food on their families’ tables, sending their kids to college, and changing the world at the same time. Providing an opportunity for others to join the renewable energy industry is an essential part of why partnerships like the Organic Valley Community Solar Project matter.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, Stanley! To read the full article, please click here.
