About This Data

Close

The following entities provided data used in this tool:

Clean Energy Projects

Solar Projects

The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) provided project data. Additional information can be found at seia.org

Additional information was provided by Trade Associations, and Solar Contractors and Installers.

Solar Schools

The solar schools data were provided by The Solar Foundation and were originally funded by a U.S. Department of Energy grant. Any re-use of these solar schools data must include “The Solar Foundation” in the citation. The full solar schools publication may be found at: thesolarfoundation.org/solar-schools

Wind Projects

The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) provided wind project data. Additional information can be found at awea.org

EIA

Project data provided by the U.S. Energy Information Agency. Additional information can be found at eia.gov

Investment Impact

Energy Efficiency Investment

The Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA) provided statewide savings for ratepayer-funded energy efficiency programs. Additional information can be found at mwalliance.org

Wisconsin Energy Efficiency Savings by State Assembly District

Assembly district savings as per the Cadmus Group's 2014 Focus on Energy evaluation report. Additional information can be found at focusonenergy.com/about/evaluation-reports

Solar Investment

Investment calculations were generated by multiplying the installed capacity by year, by project type, by the average installation cost for that project type for that year.

Average solar investment costs before 2002 were calculated at the 2002 rate of $9/watt.

Average solar investment costs between 2002 and 2012 which were used in these calculations can be found at: nrel.gov/docs/fy13osti/56776.pdf

Average solar investment costs for 2012 through 2014 which were used in these calculations can be found at: seia.org/research-resources/solar-market-insight-report-2015-q1

Average solar investment costs for 2015 and 2016 are calculated using the GTM 3Q15 number $3.55/watt for residential installs to systems under 10KW and $2.07/watt for commercial installs to everything above 10KW.

Where we don’t have street address information for a project, the investment dollars associated with that project are attributed to the zip code of the project. The total investment dollars for each zip code is then apportioned to the district or districts that share the zip code geography.

Wind Investment

Average wind investments costs for projects installed between 1998 and 2014 which were used in these calculations can be found at: energy.gov/eere/wind/downloads/2014-wind-technologies-market-report

Average wind investments costs for projects installed after 2014 were based on an average per MW for those projects in the technology segment where there was an investment value available.

Biomass Investment

Biomass investments were calculated at estimated average of digesters in Wisconsin where no per project investment cost was available.

Solar Thermal Investment

Solar Thermal investments were calculated at $125/SF. Solar Thermal Investment are costs based on training materials created by the Midwest Renewable Energy Association in collaboration with the Midwest Solar Training Network with funding from U.S. Department of Energy as part of the grant DEI EE0002089.001

Other Investment

Where no investment dollars were present values were based on an average per MW for those projects in the technology segment where there was an investment value available.

Jobs and Business Impact

Jobs

The jobs data were provided by Clean Energy Trust. Additional information can be found at cleanenergytrust.org

Clean Energy Businesses

The Midwest Renewable Energy Association provided information on Education, Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy Businesses and Research Institutions

Data rendered: Points on the map represent geocoded locations either to the street address and lat/long or randomly scattered within the zip code where specific address information was unavailable or incomplete.
