Gov. Evers releases the Clean Energy Plan
Gov. Tony Evers’ Clean Energy Plan constitutes the strongest roadmap to climate justice and clean energy in Wisconsin history. Thanks to Gov. Evers’ leadership and openness to community input, this Clean Energy Plan provides equitable solutions to economic growth and a cleaner way of life for all people here in Wisconsin.
The Clean Energy Plan builds on our ongoing efforts to transition Wisconsin to 100 percent clean energy by 2050. It will aid the local clean energy resolutions we have helped pass in county and city governments across the state. It also invests in clean energy workforce development at home that will lift us all – especially communities most impacted by climate change. The governor laid out a road map for job training programs and estimates that over 40,000 new jobs will be created by 2030. To develop equitable solutions that address the needs of everyone in the state, Gov. Evers gathered input from Tribal Nations, frontline communities, and other groups.
People from across Wisconsin – with conservation voters at the forefront – powered this incredible achievement. They volunteered hundreds of hours, showed support at events, and successfully lobbied elected leaders to make this plan a reality.
