VERONA (WKOW) — The state’s energy efficiency program is being touted as the most cost-effective in the country.

“Focus on Energy” works with residents and businesses to install energy efficient and renewable energy projects. A federal study found that “Focus on Energy” achieved the highest rate of energy savings per dollar spent.

“We’re doing all of these things so that we can continue to run a cost effective program for people across the state and so that Wisconsin can maintain its standing as a leader in energy efficiency,” said Focus on Energy Program Director Erinn Monroe-Nye.

Over the 4-year program evaluation, “Focus on Energy” accounted for 29 million tons of avoided carbon dioxide —  equivalent to taking 6 million cars off the road for a year.
