REDA Seminar Weighs Risks for the Electric Grid

"Just three tenths of one percent of Wisconsin homes have rooftop solar panels, yet every 83 seconds a new solar installation is built somewhere in the U.S. -- three times faster than just two years ago," reports Elisa Graffy in a recent seminar for REDA students sponsored by the Wisconsin Energy Institute. "If you see that kind of growth you pay attention," she adds, and electric utilities everywhere are doing just that.

A Fraction Too Small: Local Food’s Impact Difficult to Measure

Each Saturday during the growing season, 20,000 people flock to the Dane County Farmers' Market on Madison's Capitol Square. With 300 vendors, the legendary DCFM tops out as the largest producer-only market in the nation. From its humble beginnings in 1972, Madison's market is part of a national trend toward local foods that has exploded in the last decade. Wisconsin now stands at eighth nationwide in the number of such markets, bringing fresh summer bounty to people across the state.
