Focus on Energy Programs

Focus on Energy works with eligible Wisconsin businesses and residents to install cost effective energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. Focus information, resources and financial incentives help to implement projects that otherwise would not be completed, or to complete projects sooner than scheduled. Its efforts help Wisconsin businesses and residents manage rising energy costs, promote in-state economic development, protect our environment and control the state's growing demand for electricity.


Renewable Choice Program

Manitowoc Public Utilities produces a majority of the electricity used in the city. We purchase the extra power we need from various sources. As a participant in the Your Renewable Choice program, you are directing Manitowoc Public Utilities to purchase the extra power we need from renewable sources only.

  • Help to speed up the process of changing over to renewable sources of electricity.
  • Invest in the future of the “green” energy industry— the more people who make Your Renewable Choice a part of their energy usage, the more power will be generated from renewable sources each month to keep up with our demand for it!
