It looks like market forces are merging nicely with a new Wisconsin state government that is emerging from Scott Walker's hostility to renewable energy.
I remember writing this after Walker's 2014's re-election:
Now that the election is over, Walker's pro-business Public Service [Sic] Commission majority is beginning to roll out new mandatory charges on all customers of the state's pro-GOP monopoly utilities that are designed to increase profits and discourage solar and other alternative power generation.
More of the rigged game.And I wrote near the mid-point of Walker's eight-year embrace of fossil fuels about...
the administration's disdain for research and science when it comes to air pollution, climate change or water quality - - and wind farms and solar installations - - and even a major UW-Madison energy research program...The struggle is not over - - as Milwaukee's new solar installations still face obstacles put up by the major utilities and a slow-to-react PSC - - but the public wants greener energy and Wisconsin courts and elected officials will come to their senses or lose their jobs.
