Clean Power Coalition - SE Wisconsin (CPC-SEW) Foxconn Solar Petition Update
During September and October CPC-SEW gathered signatures for the following petition. Perhaps you are one of the signers.
Petition to We Energies and Foxconn:
The Racine County Foxconn campus is expected to have an initial demand of 200 megawatts, the largest electric load of any single facility in the state. According to American Transmission Co., the electrical needs of this facility are six times greater than the next-largest manufacturing plant in the state. Recently, We Energies and Foxconn have discussed putting a large solar array on Foxconn’s roof to power the facility. If Foxconn truly wants to produce technology for the 21st century, they should also be powered by 21st-century electricity sources.
Please do the right thing and power the Foxconn facility with clean, renewable energy
The petition and signatures were delivered the first week of November at WE’s headquarters. This is We Energies response:
