Through the New Homes Program, energy experts

Wisconsin building code.

technologies include: biomass, biogas, geothermal, PV, solar thermal, and
wind.  Incentives for business renewable projects will be awarded in a
competitive RFP process. 

The Retro-commissioning Program works with
owners and managers of existing buildings to optimize performance and
operational efficiency. Retro- commissioning program targets building systems,
energy-using equipment, and operating schedules and optimizing how these
elements work together.

The Small Business Program provides easy and
affordable options for making long-term energy-saving improvements. Eligible
small business owners receive a free, onsite energy assessment and are provided
with free or low-cost options for reducing monthly energy costs through the
direct install of energy savings measures.
