2019 - Statewide Victory
Gov. Evers creates an Office of Sustainability and Clean Energy
Gov. Tony Evers is created a new state government office with the goal of pushing the state to become 100 percent carbon-free by 2050, or earlier.
The goal to have all electricity consumed in Wisconsin meet clean energy benchmarks by 2050 was included in his budget request earlier in the spring, but was pulled out by the Joint Finance Committee. The proposal created an Office of Sustainability and Clean Energy.
