Advancing Climate Solutions

Climate change is real and poses an immediate threat to our global and local ecosystems. Clean Wisconsin has been a constant voice in addressing climate change in Wisconsin. Our team of policy, legal, and science experts are working to encourage clean energy in Wisconsin while also helping communities deal with the impacts of climate change.

Join Clean Wisconsin in the fight against climate change

We have fewer than 10 years to reduce carbon emissions in order to avoid catastrophic impacts of climate change. Clean Wisconsin is working tirelessly to help Wisconsin build a clean energy future.

Wisconsin needs to take bold climate action to protect our health, economy, and communities.

Clean Energy & Efficiency

Energy efficiency is a crucial and cost-effective strategy for decreasing our energy demands and working toward a clean energy future. Clean Wisconsin is encouraging utilities and the state to look to renewable energy sources, like wind and solar, and existing technology, to help Wisconsin transition to 100% carbon-free electricity.

Clean Transportation

Investment, education, and promotion of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure will greatly reduce our state’s automobile emissions. Wisconsin can be a leader in encouraging EV use by helping to lay the groundwork for an easy and fast network of charging stations across the state.

Resilient & Sustainable Communities

Clean Wisconsin has been partnering with the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District to promote education, outreach, policy and green infrastructure practices including rain barrels and rain gardens.

Protecting Air & Health

Air pollution can harm health of everyone, especially children and the elderly. Clean Wisconsin is calling on the Environmental Protection Agency to reduce and regulate pollution from coal-fire power plants across the state.

Koshkonong Solar Energy Center

Clean Wisconsin is encouraging the approval of the proposed Koshkonong Solar Energy Center, a 465-megawatt project that would produce enough clean and reliable electrcity to power at least 60,000 homes.

Focus on Energy

Clean Wisconsin supports increasing funding and modernizing the state’s already cost-effective, nationally respected and successful energy efficency and renewable resource program, Focus on Energy. With these changes, we could do so much more to save energy and costs, create jobs, and meet our state’s climate goals.

Nemadji Gas Plant

Dairyland Power Cooperative and Minnesota Power are proposing to build a 625 megawatt gas powered facility in Superior, WI called the Nemadji Trail Energy Center, which would contribute to a number of environmental issues that would impact the health and wellbeing of local residents and hinder statewide efforts to curb climate change. Clean Wisconsin is calling on the Public Service Commission to review its decision to go forward with the gas powered plant.

Green Infrastructure Partnership

Clean Wisconsin has been partnering with the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District to promote education, outreach, policy and green infrastructure practices including rain barrels and rain gardens.
