EAU CLAIRE, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A farm field between Eau Claire and Fall Creek may become an energy-producing solar garden for members of the Eau Claire Energy Cooperative if a plan co-op officials are considering proceeds. The Eau Claire Leader Telegram reports that the plan calls for the co-op’s 10,600 members to have the option to buy one or more solar panels and receive a break in the prices they pay for energy produced by the co-op.

The solar panels would be placed in a 5-acre field on co-op property behind its offices on Highway 12 east of Eau Claire. The panels would be screened from the highway by trees.
