But while the report finds sufficient energy production in the state, transmission of that energy remains an issue.

“While Wisconsin is enjoying sufficient capacity, the other half of the power picture – moving energy from the generation source to customers – is an ongoing challenge,” the report says. “The Commission is currently participating in multiple regional transmission initiatives focused on transmission planning.”
