Wisconsin's Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) was signed in March 2006 as the Act 141 law. It states retail electric providers in Wisconsin must increase their usage of renewable energy by 6%. This needs to be complete by the end of 2015.
The standard is often referred to as a "10% RPS." The goal is to have 10% of Wisconsin's energy come from renewable resources met by 2015.
Today, WPS exceeds these requirements. We use both our own and purchased renewable power sources.
Our technologies include:
- Wood-derived biomass
- Anaerobic digester gas using dairy cow manure
- Landfill gas
- Solar electric
There are a range of resources available to us. We'll use them now and in the future to meet Act 141.
