Gov. Jim Doyle, D-Wis., has announced that the state of Wisconsin has purchased over 92,400 MWh of renewable electrical energy.

"Government should be a clean energy leader, and the state of Wisconsin is taking major steps to lead the way and improve our energy independence," says Doyle. "This purchase will help encourage expansion of renewable energy sources in Wisconsin and keep our energy dollars in the local economy."

The state is purchasing electricity from renewable sources equal to 10% of the energy consumed by the Department of Health and Family Services, Department of Corrections, Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Administration, Department of Public Instruction and the University of Wisconsin system.

The renewable electricity will be purchased from Madison Gas and Electric, We Energies and Wisconsin Public Power Inc. The majority of the renewable energy will come from wind, solar, hydro and landfill gas sources in Wisconsin.
