"The bipartisan legislation would clear up a “gray area” of Wisconsin’s public utility law, which is stifling customer efforts to accessing renewable energy. If adopted, the law would affirm the property rights of homeowners, farmers, businesses, and local governments to use renewable energy produced on their own property, no matter how the project is financed. " Ask your WI legislator to support Clean Energy Choice!
Representatives Gary Tauchen (R-6, Bonduel) and Chris Taylor (D-76, Madison) have introduced a Clean Energy Choice bill that would allow Wisconsin farms, businesses, and citizens additional financing options for sourcing renewable energy produced on their property.
