APPLETON – The Boldt Company has installed a solar panel array at its new corporate headquarters in Appleton.

The array is behind the office at 2121 E. Capitol Dr. and features 928 solar photovoltaic modules. 

It is the second solar array erected on Boldt properties in Northeast Wisconsin – the other at the Chaska Golf Course on the west side of Appleton.

The project is part of We Energies’ Solar Now program in which We Energies partners with large business, nonprofit and government customers to host solar array installations in their service territory. 

The company leases the space for the panels on roofs and unused land. 

The two solar arrays on Boldt property are hooked directly into the power distribution lines that feed energy to the local area. 

According to Mark Osten, Boldt vice president of business and project development for the energy sector, the combined capacity of the Chaska and corporate office solar arrays was designed to offset the energy used by Boldt facilities in Appleton, Stevens Point, Green Bay and Waukesha.

“Boldt has been building and maintaining wind, solar, biomass and hydroelectric energy generation projects for more than 20 years, which shows our commitment to renewable energy,” Osten said. “We are proud to offset the energy our buildings use with clean, renewable solar power.”

Solar Now is a program approved by the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin.
