Legislation Needed for Our Electrified Future

Legislation towards an Electrified Future

➡️ Did you know that in Wisconsin, USA, you can lease a Ford Mustang Mach E, but you can’t finance a solar installation on the roof to charge it from the sun? That’s illegal by law.

➡️ Did you know that in Wisconsin, USA, you can’t currently buy electric vehicles like a Tesla directly through an online platform? That’s prohibited by law.

Yesterday, I joined the Renewable Energy Day at the Capitol in Madison, Wisconsin. 🔋♻️🌕

 

 

We discussed the legal restrictions and the new bills to promote renewable energy and electric vehicles in Wisconsin. I was surprised at how differently each state in the U.S. handles these issues. It was wonderful to meet many like-minded people and companies who are driving this change. Thank you to RENEW Wisconsin and Wisconsin Conservative Energy Forum for organizing this great event.

The topics we discussed:

  • Community solar and third party financing 🌕⚡️
  • Buying electric vehicles directly vs. buying through dealers.🚗
  • Charging electric vehicles per kilowatt hour through third-party chargers ⚛️
  • Sales tax exemption for battery energy storage devices 🔋

A lot of things that people like me who work in the industry want to implement from a technology standpoint need to be understood and supported by the government by being included in legislation.

Legislation needs to be written (everywhere) for our electrified future!

It’s fantastic to meet a community that has been doing this for decades, and I’m glad to be a part of it now.
