Gov. Evers declares energy emergency in Wisconsin

Local News

MADISON, Wis. (WFRV) – Gov. Tony Evers signed Executive Order #56 Wednesday declaring an energy emergency in the state of Wisconsin.

According to Evers, due to various unforeseen circumstances, including a late corn harvest and sudden cold snap, demand for propane has sharply increased across Wisconsin and the Midwest. 

The capital says the Executive Order will allow for the swift and efficient delivery of petroleum products throughout the state.  

“Hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites depend on propane to heat their homes and right now farmers are depending on it to dry their corn,” said Governor Evers. “Ensuring that we get propane to these folks is critical for the health, safety, welfare, and economic well-being of Wisconsinites across our state.”
