Dane County Executive, Joe Parisi
County Executive Parisi will lead a discussion and give an update on the work Dane County is doing to clean up our lakes, finance renewable energy development, and benefit county taxpayers. Dane County continues to add to its solar portfolio and complete its analysis on what it and other public and private partners can do locally to further reduce carbon emissions. In addition, work has begun on Dane County’s current endeavor, a $23.5 million landfill gas project that will convert garbage and cow manure into vehicle fuel. Gas from the county landfill can be compressed, cleaned and marketed nationally to earn carbon and renewable energy credits. That means millions of dollars each year for taxpayers!
