It’s only an ambiguity in the law that stands between Wisconsin and a solar boom.

Wisconsin has better sunlight than installed solar capacity world leader
Germany — but a political fight now brewing in the state could determine
whether Wisconsin will use its solar potential.
“What we are trying to do with Clean Energy Choice is clarify an ambiguity
in state law,” explained RENEW Wisconsin Program and Policy Director
Michael Vickerman. “If we don’t clear it up, anybody who puts a system
on somebody else’s house and sells the energy to the occupant is in
danger of being regulated as a public utility.”
