Hello Sunshine - Point Beach Solar Energy Center


We’re pleased to introduce the Point Beach Solar Energy Center, RFMU’s (in conjunction with WPPI Energy) newest renewable energy resource. The Point Beach Solar Energy Center spans 465 acres near Two Rivers, Wis., and is adjacent to the Point Beach Nuclear Plant, which also supplies power to River Falls electric utility customers.  This 100-megawatt project delivers safe, clean, renewable energy to our community – adding diversity to our local electric needs, while lowering costs over the long-term. This project was completed in partnership with our power supplier, WPPI Energy. 
With the addition of Point Beach Solar Energy Center, the WPPI Energy membership is on track for reducing carbon dioxide emissions approximately 45% by 2025 when compared to 2005.
The adjacent Point Beach Nuclear Plant has been producing reliable, zero-carbon energy since the early 1970s, and WPPI Energy already purchases a portion of the power that facility produces to serve member utilities.   The Point Beach Solar Energy Center is now online and already supplying renewable energy to River Falls.
River Falls Municipal Utilities (RFMU) serves residents and businesses in River Falls, WI.  RFMU is one of 51 member-owners of wholesale power provider and joint action agency, WPPI Energy. Our locally owned, not-for-profit electric utility strives to provide low-cost, reliable electricity, and superior customer service at the best overall value.
