Winneshiek Energy District

Winneshiek Energy District

Greenpenny is an active supporter of the Winneshiek Energy District (WED) mission to lead, implement, and accelerate the locally-owned, inclusive, clean energy transition. WED’s key strategies together build an unstoppable flywheel of momentum and include energy planning, market transformation, public engagement, policy advocacy, and readiness.

As the founding Energy District, WED’s mission also includes the demonstration of the energy district model viability and the growth of an energy district network. They intended to create a replicable model based upon the following key principles:

Local leadership exists everywhere. Energy Districts create independent, “universal-local” institutions to empower those with a passion for clean energy and dedication to driving change.

Energy is complicated, and Energy Districts lead by doing. Quality technical assistance (energy planning) for energy users, paired with active market transformation, enables widespread energy efficiency and solar ownership and builds a flywheel of momentum.

When Green Meets Green, communities unite and thrive. We all do better when we all do better, and the clean energy future will happen of, by, and for the people.

Energy Districts are geographically, and socio-economically inclusive, and universal replication is fully possible with existing resources. Locally owned energy efficiency and renewables create jobs, retain wealth, and build energy prosperity (one Green), and simultaneously advance climate stewardship (another Green).
