Dane County's innovative renewable energy policies and programs cut carbon – and costs

Jan 02, 2019

In Eau Claire, the city council has pledged to work toward 100 percent renewable energy by 2050.

The City of Green Bay recently approved a Sustainability Commission that will work to find local clean energy solutions.

Dane County has invested heavily in clean energy programs like methane capture from its landfill to run its snowplow fleet and solar panels to save millions in electricity costs each year.

Wisconsin Conservation Voters is excited to work with local communities that are taking the lead in the fight against climate change. Interested in working for clean energy in your community and looking for help? Contact Seth Hoffmeister.
