Our annual Ride with RENEW bike tour highlights some of Wisconsin’s leading renewable energy installations. All event proceeds support RENEW Wisconsin’s ongoing work to protect and defend renewable energy in Wisconsin. In 2017, our fifth annual ride raised over $40,000!

Riders will travel approximately 25 miles on paved roads and bike paths to visit the innovative wind, solar and biogas facilities in Milwaukee, WI. Stops will include the biodigester at Potawatomi Hotel and Casino, the Milwaukee Public Museum, and the wind turbine at Port of Milwaukee.

2018 Tour Stops

Tour stops for our 2018 Ride with RENEW are still being finalized. Here are some renewable energy sites on our list. If you are interested in sponsoring one of these tour stops, click HERE. 

Milwaukee Public Museum

MPM features 234 solar panels on its south-facing tower wall, each measuring about 4 feet x 6.5 feet. The panels are linked to a kiosk located on the ground floor that provides near-real-time data on the energy generated by the panels.

Port of Milwaukee

The City of Milwaukee’s Environmental Collaboration Office (ECO) and the Port of Milwaukee partnered to install a North Power 100 kilowatt wind turbine at the Port. Installed by Kettle View Renewable Energy, the turbine provides more than 100 percent of the electricity needed by the Port administration building.

Potawatomi Biodigester

The waste-to-energy project, one of the first of its kind in the Milwaukee-area, converts waste materials generated by the food and beverage industries to electricity. The electricity produced is sold to WE Energies as renewable energy.
