Wisconsin Senate Approves 10 Percent Renewable Energy Standard

Madison, Wisconsin [The Associated Press] Wisconsin utilities would have to increase the energy they produce from renewable resources such as the wind under a plan that state senators said Tuesday would keep customers’ energy bills lower in years to come. The Senate voted 30-1 to approve the bill requiring 10 percent of Wisconsin’s energy to come from renewable resources by 2015. State government would have to buy 20 percent of its energy from renewable resources by 2011 under the bill. The measure also calls for higher energy efficiency standards in new buildings.
