The Town of Paris will be host to a large solar energy farm as part of Wisconsin’s efforts to source more electricity from renewable sources. Construction is scheduled to start in October of 2021. Major construction activity will ramp up in 2022. The developer, Invenergy, plans to finish construction by May of 2023 and bring the project on line at which time the project will be sold to utility companies.
The project will impact the town and its residents during construction due to the scope of the project and the amount of material that will need to be delivered. The Paris Town Board has worked with Invenergy to try and anticipate challenges and come up with solutions to lessen the impact on our residents. We will use this portion of the website to share information and construction updates and offer resources. Please check back often as we post new information.
