Placeholder Image
Gov. Jim Doyle has set a goal for Wisconsin to get 25 percent of its electrical power from renewable sources by the year 2025. That's an ambitious and admirable goal. Wisconsin and other states must foster the development of renewable energy sources.The state's ability to develop wind power projects will play a big part in whether the 25 percent goal is met. Thus far, wind farm development in Wisconsin has met significant opposition at the community level.
