Local group calls for more renewable energy

Food, Love and Policy By Unknown #2 on June 3, 2009
In June's issue of the Exchange magazine, we chatted to the chaps behind Half Moon Power, learning about their foray into the wind turbine industry, and the opportunities for Wisconsin and Michigan, as well as Minnesota in this wind valley we call home.

Wisconsin is currently committed to getting 10% of its energy from renewable sources by the year 2015, but some people have been pushing for that number to go up to 25%. State government is apparently mulling it over.
Also mulling the topic over is Amelia Shenstone, who is leading the call for more renewable energy in Wisconsin through her group Wisconsin Environment.
WUWM talked with Shenstone here.
