AB 738 : Shutting Down Clean Energy

Bill Description

Wisconsin needs to develop more instate sources of clean energy to reduce the impacts of climate change, which have resulted in more extreme weather such as flooding. Renewable energy systems can coexist on the landscape with agriculture and provide much needed financial incentives for landowners. AB 738 would prohibit the PSC from allowing wind and solar installations from moving forward if 35 percent of the land on which they would be sited was considered prime agricultural land. This bill unnecessarily and arbitrarily decides how land can be used and slows Wisconsin's ability to transition to clean energy.

Current Status

AB 738 was introduced on December 6, 2023, and referred to the Assembly Committee on Energy and Utilities. It is available to be scheduled for a public hearing.
