Sierra Club et al v Public Service Commission of Wisconsin

Federal and state law prohibits discriminatory treatment of renewable energy generation owned by customers of a monopoly utility, compared to how the monopoly utility's generation is treated. The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin, on a vote of two- to-one, established prices for electricity generated by non-utility renewable energy facilities (such as rooftop solar) that are significantly lower than the effective price allowed for equivalent electricity from utility-owned generation. That decision violates the law.
