The Solar for Good grant program will issue another round of grants for nonprofit groups in Wisconsin looking to install solar-energy systems.
The Wisconsin Public Service Commission signed off Thursday on a utility's plans to develop a $104.5 million solar array in Western Wisconsin.
Employment in Wisconsin's solar industry held steady in a year marred by a global pandemic, even as the number of solar jobs tumbled nationally.
When it started, 2020 looked to be off to as good a start as any year in recent memory.
RENEW Wisconsin, a nonprofit organization that promotes renewable energy in Wisconsin, has named Heather Allen as executive director.
The coronavirus pandemic has dimmed Wisconsin's fast-growing green energy industry, costing the state some 11,000 clean energy jobs since the crisis begin in March, according to a report.
RENEW, a nonprofit group, announced Tuesday that it is issuing $150,000 worth of grants to help 19 organizations pay for 789 kilowatts worth of solar projects.
Although an eventual transition to renewable sources of energy may still seem inevitable to many, solar and wind installers have not been immune to the damage wrought by COVID-19.
Although Wisconsin's fast-growing solar energy industry isn't going dark amid the COVID-19 outbreak, it is nonetheless contending with dampened demand for some projects and pondering questions about what might have been.
Four solar farms recently approved by the Public Service Commission are expected to contribute up to 2% of Wisconsin’s electricity supply. Renewable-energy advocates and landowners alike say these are exactly the sorts of projects that are paving the way for continued growth.
State regulators on Thursday signed off on plans for a solar farm in Manitowoc County, approving the latest in a series of large-scale solar projects this year.
The solar industry has certainly changed since Tyler Huebner took over the reins at RENEW Wisconsin in 2013.
