Map and Directions

From the 2012 Summit
If you or your business want to BUILD, BUY, or BE part of Wisconsin's renewable energy future, this is a conversation you want to be engaged in.  The old energy paradigm is far too costly to continue propping up, and we must take the initiative NOW.  Our goal is to shape WI policy, regulation, and businesses into the kind of energy industry we want to be connected to.  

We're close to the limit of participants we can have in the space provided - register TODAY!

YOUR VOICE is needed as we build the road map in the BREAKOUT GROUPS listed below.  This summit will be highly participative so bring your thinking caps and drive to take back the initiative.

Breakout Groups, Morning

1A - Authorizing Renewable Energy Sales from Third Parties to Host Customers

2012 Summit Outcomes
