Bloomberg Lays Bare Walker's Sorry Record on Renewables

Alex Nussbaum of Bloomberg News published an article on Wednesday telling the nation what we Wisconsinites already know: when it comes to renewables, Governor and Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker has made it harder for renewable energy businesses here than any other Midwestern state.

The article opens: "Scott Walker's up-and-down campaign for the Republican presidential nod has produced at least one constant: As far as wind and solar developers are concerned, the Wisconsin governor may be the worst man for the job."

Read the full article here, which includes quotes from RENEW's Executive Director Tyler Huebner, and Board Member Amy Heart of The Alliance for Solar Choice.

Below are some graphs from the Bloomberg article showing how Wisconsin is lagging behind our Midwestern neighbors in both wind and solar development under Governor Walker's administration.
