WUI REGIONAL MEETINGS HIGHLIGHT RENEWABLES, TRANSMISSION AND ENERGY FORECASTS

WUI 2018 Regional Meetings were held recently in Madison and Oshkosh. They addressed how Wisconsin Utilities are incorporating renewable energy into a cost benefit energy portfolio and how renewables impact the consumer and investor. An overview of the Strategic Energy Assessment (SEA) draft was presented at the Madison meeting by Martin Day, Administrator of the Division of Energy Regulation at the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW) and the same information was presented at the Oshkosh Regional by Holly O’Higgins, SEA Docket Coordinator for the Division of Energy Regulation at PSCW. Attendees in Madison were treated to an Alliant Energy Solar project presentation and on-site tour led by Dave Sinner, Project Manager II Customer Centric Generation. Robert Bartlett, Director of Public and Community Affairs and Zack Hill, Senior Resource Development Coordinator of Alliant Energy, presented Alliant Energy’s plan to incorporate renewables. In Oshkosh attendees learned about the Cardinal-Hickory Creek Transmission line project by Director of Environmental and Local Relations, Gregory Levesque of American Transmission Company (ATC).

GOVERNOR WALKER SIGNS BILL RELATING TO RATE DISPUTES

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has signed legislation (2017 Wisconsin Act 136) to give utilities a way to resolve disputes over their attempts to raise the rates charged to homeowners and businesses. The measure would allow a utility to reach a settlement with a group representing homeowners or businesses and then let the Public Service Commission decide on approving it. If one group of ratepayers settled with the utility and the other didn’t, the commission would have to take input from all sides but could still approve the settlement. This legislation was supported by WUI and Wisconsin utilities.
