RENEW Wisconsin’s newly appointed Executive Director, Sam Dunaiski, welcomed approximately 30 people to the end-of-the-year event and extended a big thank-you to our event sponsors, Hoffman Manufacturing and Arch Solar!
“Chief Beer Officer,” Tim Piotrowski, told us about Delta Beer Lab’s history, commitment to excellence in social change, environmental advocacy, and brewing great beer! Delta Beer Lab is a “1% for the Planet” member and has committed to sending 1% of its total revenue to environmental organizations focused on water quality resources and climate change issues.
State Representative Francesca Hong (D), who represents the 76th Assembly District in Madison, joined us and shared encouraging words to keep working together on policies that will make it easier for everyone to access clean energy in Wisconsin and make a difference in our climate.
Jim Boullion, RENEW’s Director of Government Affairs, closed the event by giving everyone a brief recap of how the clean energy issues turned out in 2022 and a preview of the many issues RENEW will be working on in 2023 and beyond. Among the priorities are allowing the construction of community solar-sized projects (5 mW or less), ensuring that 3rd party financing is a viable method of paying for solar projects, and expanding the availability of electric vehicles and electric vehicle charging stations.
Michael Vickerman, RENEW Wisconsin, gives the attendees an update on the successful petition by Vote Solar asking the Wisconsin Public Service Commission to allow a family to use a 3 rd Party to help finance their solar project.
