Biofuels, wind, solar eyed as viable options for Wisconsin
From a story by Pete Bach in the Appleton Post Crescent:
Wisconsin appears to be all about cultivating renewable energy sources.
A look around the region finds a Neenah paper mill among the leaders in the developing field, while an ethanol production plant is going full tilt west of Oshkosh.
Now the prospect that a northern Wisconsin paper mill might become the first fossil fuel independent facility of its type in North America is another step closer to reality.
These projects represent a mounting effort to develop alternate energy sources as Wisconsin strives for greater independence from oil and natural gas to power homes and industrial plants.
