On the local level
We know that climate change is felt locally and that it needs to be addressed locally. We can not completely rely on the state and federal government for action.
Our Clean Energy for All campaign targets the local level and works with climate champions there to commit to clean energy legislation and create opportunities to advance their climate agendas. We work with school districts, universities, city and county governments, and other local stakeholders to build the clean energy economy in Wisconsin.
Here's some of the great work happening at the local level across Wisconsin:
- Menomonie passes Clean Energy Resolution
- Clean energy advocates release the Wisconsin Clean Energy Toolkit
- St. Norbert’s College passes clean energy resolution
- Green Bay Area Public School District Board passes clean energy resolution
- Eau Claire County Board passes goal of 100 percent clean energy by 2050
- UW-Stout Student Senate passes resolution supporting clean energy on the city level
Across the state, we've helped local communities pass clean energy policies and commit to clean energy futures. Check out this page for a more detailed list of our local victories.
Stevens Point Clean Energy Campaign
Wisconsin Conservation Voters just launched our new clean energy campaign in 2023. We're hard at work organizing community members and local elected officials to create a Sustainability Committee and hire a Sustainability Coordinator for the city.
We are asking leaders to:
- Create a Sustainability and Clean Energy Committee and hire a Sustainability Coordinator to lead the city's carbon reduction strategies.
- Commit to achieving 100 percent clean energy and carbon neutrality for Stevens Point including city operation, residents, and bsinesses by 2040.
If you live in Stevens Point, sign this petition to encourage the common council to formally adopt the recommendations.
