3 Wind Energy Projects In SW Wisconsin Show Growing Interest In The Field

Three possible wind energy projects in southwestern Wisconsin are evidence of growing interest in the industry in this state.

Utilities are looking for renewable energy sources. Wind energy production costs have fallen over the last 10 years and the federal government is offering tax incentives, but that tax credit goes away at the end of the year. The projects in the state's southwestern region could generate more than 300 megawatts and that represents about 40 percent of the electricity generated in Wisconsin right now.
