Legislation to expand community solar has been introduced. Your action is needed!

On Tuesday, July 13 Senator Duey Stroebel (R - Saukville) and Representative Timothy Ramthun (R - Campbellsport) released legislation to expand access to community solar in Wisconsin. They have asked other members of the legislature to sign on as co-sponsors of the bill. The deadline to co-sponsor the bill is Friday, July 23rd.  Ask Your Legislators to Co-Sponsor the Bill!

Community solar refers to a solar array, five megawatts or less, located within a community where multiple customers, including households, small businesses, churches, schools, and local governments, can subscribe to a portion of the project and receive a credit on their utility bill for their share of the power the solar panels produce. Community solar programs expand access to solar energy, avoid the significant upfront costs of a traditional system, and provide an economical alternative to the traditional process of individuals and businesses placing solar systems on their property.
