Focus on Energy and Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) has teamed up to offer bonuses for facilities installing energy efficiency.
The Focus program offers financial incentives to eligible business customers* who install many types of qualifying energy efficient equipment. The program offers both prescriptive incentives for a variety of specific improvements and custom incentives for improvements that do not fall under any of the prescriptive listings. More information on the standard Focus incentives is located here. WPS customers are eligible for additional bonuses on top of the Focus standard incentives.

  • Customers who install 2 unrelated projects earn a 25% bonus
  • Customers who install 3 unrelated projects earn a 50% bonus
