Greener electrical power becomes the rule in Wisconsin

Homes and businesses in Door and Kewaunee Counties are getting the majority of their electricity from natural gas and renewable sources.  That follows a national trend where coal-fired generating plants are being closed and natural-gas, wind, and solar facilities are taking over.  Wisconsin Public Service spokesman Matt Cullen says the company is making strides in reducing its carbon footprint.

 

 

Cullen says that's due in part to simple economics.  Natural gas has become cheaper to use while solar and wind power technologies have improved their cost-effectiveness.

 

 

The trend away from fossil fuels will continue in Wisconsin. WEC Energy Group, WPS's parent company,  recently got state approval for a pair of solar generation projects.
