State buys 92K megawatts of green electricity
The state government has purchased more than 92,000 megawatt-hours of renewable electricity.
Gov. Jim Doyle's office says We Energies, Wisconsin Public Power and Madison Gas and Electric have agreed to sell power that will mainly come from wind, hydro, solar and landfill gases within the Badger State.
State agencies and the University of Wisconsin System are required to buy at least 20 percent of their energy from renewable sources by the start of 2012.
