A May 6th, 2014 panel discussion on Wisconsin's Renewable Energy Standard hosted by Steve Walters, senior producer WisconsinEye. Panelists:

  • Phil Montgomery, chair of the Wisconsin public service commission
  • Keith Roepple, senior policy director with Clean Wisconsin
  • Gary Radloff, director of Midwest energy policy analysis at the Wisconsin Energy Institute
  • Dan Ebert, vice president WPPI Energy

Walters introduces the panel discussion by saying, "State law chapter 196 says this 'Wisconsin utilities should get 10 percent of their energy from renewable sources by next year.' Next year being 2015. That law means the renewable energy standard will be one subject that the governor and lawmakers elected in November will have to consider next year."
