​Renewable Energy

Pursuant to Wisconsin Statute § 1.12(3)(b), it is the goal of the state that, "to the extent that it is cost-effective and technically feasible, all new installed capacity for electric generation in the state be based on renewable energy resources, including hydroelectric, wood, wind, solar, refuse, agricultural and biomass energy resources."

The Commission is involved in many areas relating to renewable energy, including overseeing electric provider compliance with the Renewable Portfolio Standard, construction of renewable energy projects and interconnection of renewable energy with the electric grid.
