Update on Focus Funding for Residential Solar

The Wisconsin Public Service Commission (PSC) held an open hearing to discuss the renewable energy incentives offered by Focus on Energy, July 26, 2013. A final order was expected to be published August 13, 2013 that would suspend Focus on Energy’s incentives for residential renewable energy installations of Solar Thermal and Solar Photovoltaic technologies for the remainder of 2013. However, the PSC opened up a comment period about this order for 1 week through August 12th. More than 600 individuals and businesses registered to support continuing incentives.  As of Wednesday, August 14, 2013, the PSC has not issued the final order. As a result, the Focus on Energy Residential Rewards Program will continue to process new reservation applications for Solar Thermal and Solar Photovoltaic until the order has been issued or funds have been exhausted. For questions regarding this announcement, please contact Focus on Energy at 800.762.7077. (For further coverage click here)
