The information in this entry is for the January 2012 - March 2012 program. Applications for this period were due by April 30, 2012.

Focus on Energy offers incentives for the incorporation of energy efficiency into newly constructed apartment and condo buildings. The program offers a combination of prescriptive equipment rebates and custom incentives based on the amount of energy that a project saves. Eligible equipment generally includes energy efficient appliances, HVAC equipment, building shell measures, and lighting measures. Incentives are available for common area and building improvements, as well as certain installations applicable to individual dwelling units.

To begin participating in the program, eligible building owners/managers may participate in a free energy consultation with Focus personnel. In general, for prescriptive HVAC and appliance rebates, up to $4,000 in incentives are available without pre-approval although pre-approval is always required for certain measures. Custom incentives for electricity and natural gas savings are broken down into two tiers based on the number of measure categories that are implemented. Click here for a full list of prescriptive and custom incentives for multi-family new construction (effective January 1, 2012). The Focus on Energy program itself does not have a specific expiration date, although many individual program applications expire at different times throughout the year.

Focus on Energy works with eligible Wisconsin residents and businesses to install cost effective energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. Focus information, resources and financial incentives help to implement projects that otherwise would not be completed, or to complete projects sooner than scheduled. Its efforts help Wisconsin residents and businesses manage rising energy costs, promote in-state economic development, protect our environment and control the state's growing demand for electricity and natural gas.

Please note that customer eligibility for Focus on Energy incentives is based on utility participation; interested individuals and companies should use the eligibility tool on the program web site to determine if their local utility participates in the Focus on Energy program. Further incentive details, applications, and other information are available at the program web site.

Incentives are also available for existing apartment and condo buildings.
