Note: This program is no longer available.  New programs of Cederburg Light and Water will be announced in the first quarter of 2015.

Cedarburg Light and Water Utility provides incentives for commercial, industrial and agricultural customers to increase the energy efficiency of eligible facilities. Upon request, Cedarburg Light and Water Utility will send an energy engineer from their power supplier, Wisconsin Public Power Inc., to inspect the facility and suggest cost-effective ways to reduce the customer's monthly energy bill. They will provide an in-depth analysis of the operation’s energy use and a detailed report outlining specific recommendations and estimated savings. If the project will reduce energy consumption and power demand during peak periods, the customer may be eligible for a cash incentive. To qualify for an incentive, customers should receive pre-approval from Cedarburg Light & Water prior to implementing any efficiency improvements. Many types of efficiency improvement projects are eligible, and the incentive amount will be determined on a case-by-case basis. For more information, please contact Fred Rambert.

The Request for Proposals (RFP) for Energy Efficiency program is designed to encourage investment by large commercial and industrial utility customers in energy efficient improvements. Up to $250,000 of incentive funding is available for each bid cycle. The RFP seeks large efficiency projects that reduce annual total energy consumption by 150,000 kilowatt-hours or more, or that result in 25 kilowatts or more of electical demand reduction.

Wisconsin Focus on Energy offers financial incentives to eligible business customers for installing qualifying energy efficiency measures. These measures include a variety of technologies including energy efficient lighting, motors, compressed air, and HVAC equipment. To find out more click on link provided.
