Wisconsin wind energy policy; Cashton Greens wind farm

Featured in this Show

  • Wisconsin wind energy policy

    The state of Wisconsin is behind most other Midwestern states when it comes to creating energy from wind. Iowa and Minnesota are by far the leaders in the upper Midwest, and Wisconsin is a state that has some of the fewest wind farm projects in the planning stages. We debate the pros and cons of Wisconsin’s current wind power siting laws, and look at the prospects for future wind energy projects.

  • Newsmakers Web Extra

    We have the entire discussion on Wisconsin wind energy policy between Green Bay area Republican state Senator Frank Lasee and Chris Kunkle, the energy and telecommunications project manager at the Madison law firm of Cullen, Weston, Pines & Bach.

  • Cashton Greens wind farm

    How did an organic food producer and a regional health system come together to work on a wind energy generation project? Cashton Greens wind farm has been working for about a year in the Monroe County village of Cashton. Learn more about the wind farm from representatives of Organic Valley and Gundersen Health System which partner on the project.
