Madison – Rep. Mike Kuglitsch (R-New Berlin) was disappointed by Governor Tony Evers’ Executive order that requires Wisconsin shift to 100% renewable energy sources by 2050. The executive order was released earlier this afternoon.
“Since the sun does not always shine and the wind does not always blow, it is irresponsible to mandate total carbon free generated electricity when there is not technology currently available to sustain a power grid 24/7 using intermittent generation. We need to have a reliable energy grid as it is literally the economic engine that keeps moving Wisconsin forward. To have a goal is one thing, but to mandate it without assurance that the technology will exist is negligent.”
