Wisconsin Proposes 10% Renewable Electricity Bill

The Wisconsin senate has passed a bill that requires 10% of the electricity generated in the state to come from renewable sources by 2015. The bill is now headed to the state Legislature. It is designed, in large part, to reduce Wisconsin's dependence on out-of-state energy sources. It could generate billions in wind-power projects for the state's economy. The state reportedly generates about 3 percent to 4 percent of its own renewable energy, but the bill would expand that to 10 percent by 2015.
