Wind, solar energy ready for prime time in Wisconsin and beyond
(page 2 of 2)
Meanwhile, solar and wind are seeing growth, economies of scale, and dramatic cost reductions, and are poised to continue their march toward being mainstream power sources for decades to come.
To learn more about what’s happening on renewable energy in Wisconsin and beyond, I encourage readers to attend our organization’s 6th annual Renewable Energy Summit. Our theme this year is “Clean Energy Goes Mainstream,” and it’s being held on Thursday, Jan. 19, at Monona Terrace in Madison.
Barbara Nick, the CEO of Dairyland Power Cooperative, will headline the morning session. Under her leadership, Dairyland is building large wind and solar projects throughout western Wisconsin.
The afternoon will be headlined by the national Executive Director of Vote Solar, Adam Browning, who is coming in from California to discuss the status, key issues, and prospects for solar energy’s growth in Wisconsin and beyond. His parents live in Wisconsin, so he knows our state territory well.
I encourage you to join us on Jan. 19 to learn more. You’ll see an exciting picture of a huge growth opportunity for Wisconsin’s economy.
Tyler Huebner is executive director of RENEW Wisconsin.
