Fond du Lac solar farm ready to make electricity


A solar farm that will generate enough electricity to power more than 150 homes, or about 10 percent of the Black Bear Casino's electric needs, was unveiled Tuesday by the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.

The $2.2 million solar project is among the largest to come online in the Northland with several more expected in coming months.

Supporters say solar is an emission-free energy choice that will help cut pollutants, including carbon dioxide, the greenhouse gas that most scientists agree is pushing global climate change.
