TAKOMA PARK, Md. - June 15 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Think Energy, a renewable energy consulting firm, congratulates the State of Wisconsin on the release of a request for proposals for a long-term renewable energy purchase. Through a joint effort with the Responsible Purchasing Network at the Center for a New American Dream, Think Energy helped the State of Wisconsin draft a request for proposals that will help them to achieve their goal of purchasing 25% of the energy used in State buildings from renewable sources. This endeavor involved coordination among the state's utility commission, government, and utilities.

)c) Send2PressThink Energy coordinated the request for proposals development process by identifying and resolving stakeholder concerns about the size and structure of a large State renewable energy purchase. Think Energy brought the largest utilities in Wisconsin into a dialogue with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin and the State Department of Administration. Think Energy also worked with the Department of Administration to define their goals for this initial renewable energy purchase. The State hopes to sign ten-year contracts for up to 90,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) by the end of 2007 and up to 180,000 MWh by the end of 2011. These goals were outlined in Wisconsin's Energy Efficiency and Renewables Act of 2006. This Act can be found at http://www.legis.state.wi.us/lc/publications/im/im_2006_01.pdf.

Think Energy Chief Executive Officer Mark Crowdis applauds Wisconsin's proactive response: "States like Wisconsin are taking initiative and providing leadership in America's switch to green energy. By defining clean energy goals and considering the input of utilities, project developers, and technology vendors, Wisconsin has laid a blueprint for success that other states can and should replicate."
