Governor Unveils Energy Plan

Governor Tony Evers is unveiling a plan to save energy and fight climate change.

Evers’ first Clean Energy Plan boosts investment in solar and wind projects, incentivizes more people to buy electric cars, and aims to have Wisconsin carbon-neutral by 2050.

The governor’s report says only about four-percent of Wisconsin’s electricity comes from renewables like wind and solar. But accomplishing that may be difficult. Right now, Wisconsin gets about 40-percent of its electricity from coal, and another 35 percent from natural gas.
