Representatives introduce ‘Clean Energy Choice’ bill in Wisconsin

The state Assembly may discuss legislation to allow more sources of money for green energy projects within the year.

State Representatives Gary Tauchen, R-Bonduel, and Chris Taylor, D-Madison, introduced a “Clean Energy Choice” bill Friday that would legalize more financing options for renewable energy production, according to a statement from RENEW Wisconsin.

“Clean Energy Choice” would remove restrictions for funding renewable energy projects for homeowners, businesses and local governments, according to the statement.

RENEW Wisconsin is a nonprofit organization comprised of businesses, organizations and individuals that promote green energy initiatives.

Michael Vickerman, policy and program director for RENEW Wisconsin, lauded the bill’s introduction and said in the statement the bill would address a currently ambiguous area of Wisconsin’s public utility law.

“We are advancing ‘Clean Energy Choice’ to provide common sense financing solutions for important projects that put the power in consumer hands,” Vickerman said in the statement.
