Energy Self Sufficiency: The SOUL of a greener Wisconsin
WNPJ member group SOUL (Save Our Unique Lands) of the Kickapoo has been building the movement against high-voltage transmission lines planned to criss-cross Wisconsin, being pushed by American Transmission Company to supply industrial customers with dirty coal power from the Dakotas and destructive hydroelectric power from Manitoba. The planned projects will raise utility rates overall, while the Wisconsin Public Service Commission--an unelected 3-member board that wields enormous power over our energy grid--has approved rate reductions for industry and rate hikes for residential and small business customers. SOUL is publicizing the benefits of energy efficiency and distributed generation using clean, safe, small-scale renewable energy technology.
