Over the next decade, local communities throughout Wisconsin have the potential to make significant advances in the state's transition to a clean energy future. Energy Independent Communities (EIC) pledged to generate 25% of power and transportation fuels from renewable resources locally by 2025. There are 150 EICs which encompass 58.7% of Wisconsin’s population.
Representatives from UW Madison Extension (Sherrie Gruder) and the state’s Office of Energy Innovation (Megan Levy) joined us to reveal the results of the recently completed survey of the Energy Independent Communities. Further, they discussed upcoming programs and the urgency with which we need to address the clean energy transition within the next eleven years.
