Advancing Clean Energy at the Public Service Commission
The Public Service Commission (PSC) regulates Wisconsin’s public utilities. It decides whether energy projects are built and how much your energy bill will cost. Our legal team advocates for clean energy, opposes polluting energy sources, and argues for more energy efficiency and conservation through intervention and testimony before the PSC. You can make your voice heard and support our legal action at the PSC by submitting public comments in important cases.
We’ll send you regular updates with opportunities to make your voice heard and help protect Wisconsin’s environment.
The Public Service Comission
Clean Wisconsin works with experts to submit testimony in cases before the Public Service Commission to support clean energy policies and projects, fight against new fossil fuel investments, and expand energy efficiency programs. In addition, Clean Wisconsin staff actively participate in energy-related investigations and policy committees such as the Wind Siting Council, the Roadmap to Zero Carbon, the Strategic Energy Assessment, and review updates to the Focus on Energy program.
Our legal team advocates for clean energy projects by testifying in front of the PSC in support of new clean investment. Our advocacy has helped in the approval of the Koshkonong Solar Farm and other projects.
Our legal team fights against unsustainable fossil fuel projects by testifying in front of the PSC in opposition of new fossil fuel investments. Our advocacy makes it more difficult for new fossil fuel infrastructure to be developed in Wisconsin.
Our legal team intervenes in rate cases to ensure that utility customers are paying fair and justified rates and that utility companies are doing more to prioritize energy efficiency. After Clean Wisconsin intervened In a 2021 rate case with MG&E, the utility company settled and agreed to lower its fixed charges and expand a smart thermostat program.

WE Energies Rate Case
Are you a WE Energies customer?
WE Energies wants to raise the price for electric bills by 13% and gas bills by up to 13.8%. Both increases are higher than those the company proposed when it filed its rate case with the PSC.
Clean Wisconsin has intervened in this rate case. WE Energies should be expanding energy efficiency programs in this rate increase, saving customers money and conserving energy.
You can make a difference and ensure that WE Energies customers are paying fair and justified rates.
WE Energies is currently asking for permission to raise the price they charge for energy by more than 8%. Instead of asking customers to pay the bill, WE Energies should be expanding energy efficiency programs, saving customers money and conserving energy.
You can make a difference and ensure that WE Energies customers are paying fair and justified rates!
