MADISON, Wis. - Southern Wisconsin is turning to solar power now more than ever. It's a big part of Madison's push to be powered 100% by renewable energy sources by 2030. Multiple big projects are either online already or in the pipeline and are scheduled to be completed soon.

Meteorologist Dave Caulfield spoke with experts on solar energy and climate change and goes digging for answers tonight on News 3 Now at 10.
