Wisconsin’s Budget Could Be a Winner for Renewable Energy
Wisconsin’s Joint Finance Committee begins voting on the 2019-2021 State Budget starting on May 9th, including key provisions to bolster renewable energy innovation and jobs across the state. This budget proposal is a renewable energy winner, allocating $50 million to fund energy conservation projects and $25 million for renewable energy projects on state-owned facilities. These funds would help state agencies and the University of Wisconsin System meet their energy conservation goals, and savings on utility bills would be used to pay for these energy conservation and renewable energy projects!
OneEnergy Renewables strongly supports this common-sense initiative to green Wisconsin’s power supply and support good-paying jobs in the state. We encourage policymakers to keep these renewable energy priorities in the budget for a cleaner, brighter energy future in Wisconsin.
