Ave M. Bie quoted in article “Renewable Energy Mandate May Get New Scrutiny”

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

After the administration of Gov. Jim Doyle pursued an aggressive agenda pushing the expansion of renewable energy, Governor-elect Scott Walker and the new Republican-controlled Legislature will take a second look at the costs of going green.

That's the consensus of energy experts interviewed after the resounding Republican electoral victories last week.

"Energy has always been and will continue to be a critical component of not only the quality of life in Wisconsin but in the economic development of a state like Wisconsin, and its health," said Ave Bie, who was chair of the Public Service Commission under Republican Gov. Tommy Thompson.
