Sign on to Statement of Support for Clean Energy Choice
We believe the Wisconsin renewable energy business community will enjoy substantial and sustained growth if allowed to use the same tools that are available in over 20 states. This is why we strongly endorse the Clean Energy Choice initiative, and look forward to supporting legislation next year that would exempt third party-owned renewable energy systems that sell energy directly to the host customer from the definition of a public utility. Join nearly 100 Wisconsin business, organizations, and local governments that have already signed on in support of Clean Energy Choice.
