In the late evening hours, after several other contentious decisions, including re-branding the City’s image and logo, the City of Beaver Dam Common Council voted 10 to 3 on August 20, 2018 to hire Legacy Solar Co-op to work with (member) North Wind Renewable Energy Cooperative and (member) E3 Lighting to construct two 100-plus kilowatt solar arrays (on the city hall and the Watermark Community and Senior Center) and perform over $31,000 in LED lighting retrofits for the City this fall. The city had announced their hope in a July 27, 2018 article.
Install work at the City Hall has started and the site is making good progress on module installation.
Stay tuned for more on this project as it progresses.
