Coal Costs Us Week of Action

Coal costs us so much. There are six coal plants in Wisconsin that our utilities have no plans to retire and transition to clean energy. That is not acceptable. We know that our health, our economy, and our climate & environment are all negatively impacted by the coal plants in our state.
