Carbon-Free by 2050
Wisconsin needs to significantly reduce carbon emissions to tackle the growing threat of climate change.
Clean Wisconsin is encouraging utilities and the state to look to renewable energy sources, like wind and solar, and existing technology, like energy storage and energy efficiency to help Wisconsin transition to 100% carbon-free electricity.
Wind & solar are cheaper than gas & coal.
Since 2009, the cost of renewable energy has dropped significantly.
Electricity generated from wind and solar often cost less than electricity generated by fossil fuels.
Consequently, states and utility providers are investing in many new wind and solar projects.
Other Midwest States are going carbon-free.
Minnesota: 100% clean by 2050
Wisconsin: 100% clean by 2050
Illinois: 100% renewable by 2050
