Our Commitment to You

We are committed to local partnerships and look forward to working with our new neighbors in Portage County to create growth in the community. Together, we’ll use the land in new, effective, and exciting ways with long-lasting benefits.

The positive impacts of a development like this are indisputable, with new financial resources and support for local governments. This project will fuel economic development in the region through local spending and hiring. The payments to local government will provide additional support to schools and vital community services.

The Doral team has strong respect for the important role local farmers play in their community. We share the values of integrity, hard work, family and community. We embrace our future role as an active community member. We pledge our efforts to be good partners, good neighbors. You can count on us. You have our word. As time goes by, we look forward to sitting on the porch, talking about the Badgers, the Brewers, the Bucks and the Green Bay Packers while enjoying a frosty beverage on a sunny day.

Making Solar Work for Central Wisconsin

Beyond the economic boost this project will provide to the region, the positive environmental impacts are clear: solar energy systems do not produce air pollution or greenhouse gas emissions. Portage County can play a meaningful role in reducing the reliance on more harmful sources of electricity.

The solar panels are safe for the land and proven to work year round in various weather conditions – which is important in a place like Wisconsin! In fact, the Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy said that research has “shown that solar can still successfully generate electricity in snowy areas and other harsh environments.”

Solar panels continue to function properly in the colder weather as the PV technology in panels leverages the cold to generate power. And we’ve enhanced our systems to minimize disruption from snow. The sloped panels are positioned toward the sun, and the snow can actually increase the amount of sunlight absorbed by the panels.
