Greenpenny a Presenting Sponsor of RENEW Wisconsin Renewable Energy Summit

January 24, 2022

Renew Wisconsin

Wisconsin – Greenpenny will be a presenting sponsor at the RENEW Wisconsin 2022 Renewable Energy Summit. This year’s summit, All Roads Lead to Clean Energy, will highlight the convergence of methods, technologies, people and scale at the intersection of Wisconsin’s energy transformation.   The event will be held January 27th virtually or in-person in Madison, Wisconsin.

“The Summit will bring together renewable energy professionals, policymakers, utility leaders, government officials, students and advocates to advance principles and practices in renewable energy,” stated Heather Allen, executive director of RENEW Wisconsin. “The annual event is for anyone who cares about Wisconsin’s clean energy future.”


Greenpenny President to Serve on Panel Discussion

“We learned last year that the Summit is a great place to exchange ideas and learn from others involved in solutions to further advance renewables,” said Jason MacDuff, president of greenpenny. “We look forward to participating in the forum, Stacking Capital for Renewable Energy in Wisconsin, where we’ll discuss how projects are funded - everything from homes, businesses, non-profits and farms, to large-scale renewable ventures.” 

As a Summit sponsor and participant, greenpenny will share information about its work in the clean energy space through solar financing. “Sustainable financing is the sole mission of greenpenny,” continues MacDuff. “We are trying to do our part to make solar affordable and available for all property owners in Wisconsin and beyond.”
