Summary

The Focus on Energy Design Assistance Program provides design professionals, builders and developers of new buildings with whole building energy analysis tools. The program offers incentives to reduce the upfront cost of measures that increase the efficiency of commercial, industrial, and multi-family buildings (4 or more units) that exceed Wisconsin codes and standards. Design teams are eligible to receive incentives between $0.012 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) saved to $0.015 per kWh saved. After construction, building owners are eligible for incentives based on projected energy savings: $0.09 per kWh and $0.55 per therm. Eligible measures will be customized for each project, but measures may include:

  • Improved wall assembly
  • Improved roof assembly
  • Improved window/glazed assembly
  • Automated daylighting controls
  • Other lighting controls
  • Lighting design to reduce lighting power densities
  • HVAC system improvements
  • Fan and pump improvements
  • Conditioning of outside air strategies
  • Service water heating improvements

Efficiency measures that are not eligible under this program may be eligible for other Focus on Energy Business Programs. Eligible buildings include free-standing buildings, adaptive reuse, substantial renovations, and major additions to existing buildings. Please note that customer eligibility for Focus on Energy incentives is based on utility participation; interested individuals and companies should check the list of participating Wisconsin electric and natural gas utilities to confirm their eligibility. Interested design teams and building owners should visit the program web site to begin the enrollment process.
