Here’s what we know about Savion’s second Saratoga Solar project

SARATOGA – Saratoga’s second solar project is coming closer to reality.

Last month, Missouri-based renewable energy company Savion submitted key documents needed for state regulators to review and sign off on the large-scale solar project on land that was previously designated as the site of a large-scale dairy.

Here’s what you need to know about the project.

Wood County Solar. Saratoga Solar. What’s the difference?

Both projects are, or were, being developed by Savion. Both projects are set on Saratoga land that was originally slated for a large-scale dairy farm.

Each of the projects is expected to produce about 150 megawatts of energy, enough to power about 40,000 homes.

The key difference? Savion sold the Wood County Solar project to Alliant Energy but so far Alliant has no plans to buy the second project, Chris Caporale, communications partner for the power utility, said.
