Title
Resolution relating to a lease and service agreement for the construction and operation of a solar photovoltaic system on a City-owned closed landfill at 1600 E College Ave.
Analysis
The City of Milwaukee has established a 25 percent by 2025 renewable energy goal and supports the principles of the Paris Climate Accord. To help achieve those goals, this resolution authorizes the Department of City Development to execute an electric service agreement and lease with the Wisconsin Electric Power Company to construct and operate 2.25 megawatts of solar energy through the Solar Now pilot program offered by the Wisconsin Electric Power Company on a portion of the city-owned closed landfill located at 1600 E College Ave. The project coincidentally supports the energy resilience plan for the Wisconsin Air National Guard 128th Air Refueling Wing, since the most economic route to interconnect the system to Wisconsin Electric Power’s
Distribution System is through facilities on the base. Revenue from the lease is intended to be used to support additional climate action.

Body
Whereas, On December 22, 2009, the Common Council adopted File Number 091066, supporting the “25 x 25” goal, which called for generating 25 percent of the City’s electricity from renewable resources by 2025; and
