August 2005 - Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle unveiled a broad package of legislation and executive orders to support conservation and sustainable use of the state's natural resources, including a call for state agencies to purchase 10% of their power needs from renewable energy sources by 2006, increasing to 20% by 2010. The governor also proposes an increase in the state's renewable portfolio standard (RPS) from the existing target level of 2.2% by 2011 to one of 10% in 2015. Both renewable energy-related actions were recommended by the Governor's Task Force on Energy Efficiency and Renewables in July 2004.
