The Wisconsin Public Service Commission says in its 25-page report that all 118 Wisconsin electric providers met renewable energy portfolio standards for 2010. The commission said the utilities are making progress toward the requirement that 10% of electricity come from renewable sources by 2015, and five have met that standard.
Last year, 7.37% of electricity sold by state utilities and cooperatives was from renewable sources. It was 6.29% in 2009. When voluntary green-pricing programs are included, 7.92% was program compliant. Among projects noted by the commission was the Crane Creek Wind Farm (99 MW) in Iowa, owned by Green Bay-based Wisconsin Public Service Corp.
