Today, the Program partners with 107 utilities across the state to help Wisconsin residents and businesses reduce energy waste.
“Energy efficiency is the most cost-effective way to drive down utility bills and avoid new construction of costly generation and transmission facilities,” said Rebecca Cameron Valcq, Chairperson of the Public Service Commissions of Wisconsin. “For decades, Focus on Energy has consistently demonstrated its value to our state. Our continued investment in Focus on Energy will bring immediate benefits that will pay dividends to customers and utilities for decades to come.”
