MADISON, Wis. - A statewide initiative focusing on energy efficiency and renewable energy is saving Wisconsin residents $20.2 million a year in energy costs, according to Focus on Energy, a public-private partnership offering energy information and services to utility customers throughout Wisconsin.

The savings occurs through Focus on Energy's programs for residential energy users, which help residents install Energy Star appliances and lighting; upgrade insulation, water heaters, and heating and cooling systems; build high-performance homes; and install renewable energy systems at home. More than 3,000 Wisconsin Energy Star homes have been built since the Focus on Energy program's inception in 1999, and the City of Madison and Dane County bought more than 4,500 compact fluorescent light bulbs at a Focus on Energy sale earlier this year.
