In Wisconsin, the State Energy Office implemented a grant program for manufacturers, municipalities, tribes, and k-12 school districts.  The program will reduce energy consumption, increase the use of renewable energy and transportation technologies, bolster preparedness and resiliency in the energy system, and ensure that comprehensive energy planning is at the forefront of these efforts.  In previous rounds, $5 million was made available for the 30 successful applicants that leveraged Focus on Energy rate-payer funded incentive programs and an additional $4.5 million in local and private investments.

Through EIGP, Wisconsin will track energy use and cost savings, emission reductions, renewable energy generation, job creation, and the impact of education and training on the workforce.
