La Crosse, WI – As part of its statewide launch, the Coulee Region Sierra Club, La Crosse Mayor Tim Kabat, and Citizen Action of Wisconsin will be addressing members of the media and the public on Tuesday, March 10, at 12:30 p.m. at La Crosse City Hall Lobby, to announce the release of the “Wisconsin Clean Energy Toolkit: Developing a Clean Energy Plan for Your Community.”
Mayor Kabat will detail the progress the city of La Crosse is already making to meet its clean energy goals. Amy Dummer of Citizen Action of Wisconsin will explain opportunities for private citizens and businesses to convert to clean energy.
As concern over climate change and its impacts deepens, local communities across Wisconsin are eager to develop and implement clean energy plans. Often, they struggle with how to begin from a technical perspective and how to engage their communities.
A collaboration between Wisconsin Conservation Voters, Sierra Club, and RENEW Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Clean Energy Toolkit is a comprehensive guide to energy policy options in Wisconsin. The toolkit is a resource designed to help guide communities of varying sizes and with differing resources as they consider, craft, and implement clean energy policies.
Towns, villages, cities, and counties in Wisconsin are building the renewable energy economy and leading the way in confronting climate change. The Wisconsin Clean Energy Toolkit recognizes the leadership in Wisconsin communities and the opportunities to expand these efforts across the state.
The toolkit’s release on March 10 will include events in Madison, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Eau Claire, La Crosse, Racine, Waukesha, and Menomonie.
