PSC Investigates Focus on Energy in Relation to Broadband Deployment

On September 1, 2016, The Wisconsin Public Service Commission issued a notice of investigation into the use of Focus on Energy programs and funding for rural areas that are undeserved by broadband as a possible means of improving energy efficiency opportunities and rural economic development through broadband deployment. The investigation will be conducted without public hearing. However, forty parties ranging from utilities and businesses, to nonprofit organizations and individuals requested intervenor status within the fourteen-day period allotted. Read the notice of investigation here.
