7.03 Sustainability

This page includes data that provide two perspectives on environmental sustainability. The first data set, from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, measures recycling program performance in terms of waste recycled in pounds per capita. The second data set is from the East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission and includes the amount of energy generated (in megawatts) at local power plants from renewable energy sources. Renewable energy sources include biofuels, hydroelectric power, solar thermal or photovoltaic power, and wind power greater than 10KW.
