Focus on Energy, Wisconsin utilities' statewide program for energy efficiency and renewable energy, has announced that in 2012, it achieved the most energy savings and customer participation since the program began more than a decade ago.

The program is funded by the state's investor-owned energy utilities and participating municipal and electric cooperative utilities, and it works with eligible Wisconsin residents and businesses to install energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.

Focus on Energy launched 15 new energy efficiency and renewable energy programs for residents and businesses throughout 2012. With a new and improved portfolio of programs in place, Focus on Energy says this year will offer Wisconsinites more opportunities to achieve energy savings.

"The modifications and program expansions we made in 2012 have set the groundwork for continued growth and success in 2013 and beyond," says William S. Haas, program director for Focus on Energy. "From homeowners and renters to small business owners and large energy users, Focus on Energy develops and implements creative and effective energy programs that benefit a wide range of customers."
