Agribusiness

Improve your bottom line

Installing cost-effective energy efficiency and renewable energy projects can improve rural Wisconsin’s bottom line. With agriculture energy expenditures climbing to almost $700 million each year, farmers need the resources and knowledge to eliminate unnecessary expenses while maintaining a safe and productive business.

Focus on Energy provides incentives for equipment upgrades delivering measurable energy results and financial savings for Wisconsin’s farms and agribusinesses.
