Madison – “The supporters of Senate Bill 144 do not understand what a renewable resource is. The bill adds waste heat recapture as eligible for renewable energy credits.
“Waste heat recapture, while a great technology, is NOT a renewable resource. Renewable energy credits should only be generated by renewable sources, such as solar, wind and biofuel.
“Because Wisconsin has already met our Renewable Portfolio Standard – one of the lowest in the nation – there is no market for credits given. This bill benefits no one. It makes no sense why it was before us today and even less sense as to why it was passed.”
