The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin seeks public input for Phase Two of the Quadrennial Planning Process which will set goals for statewide energy efficiency and renewable programs.
Wisconsin Act 141 requires that the PSC conduct a review of all energy efficiency and renewable resource programs at least once every four years and determine appropriate goals, priorities and measurable targets.
The PSC is addressing these requirements in two phases.
In Phase One of the quadrennial process, the PSC addressed broad policy issues which needed to be decided before the more detailed questions of evaluation, goals and budgets for statewide programs could be examined in Phase Two.
In Phase One, the PSC decided to first establish energy-savings goals for energy efficiency and customer-sited renewable resource programs, and then determined the money commitments necessary to achieve the goals.
In July 2010, the PSC made decisions regarding the evaluation of energy efficiency and renewable resource programs to guide Phase Two of the Quadrennial Planning process, which is the establishment of the goals and levels of money for these programs.
Public input will be accepted until noon on Wednesday, Sept. 15, on the PSC website. Members of the public may submit comments using the Electronic Regulatory Filing system or may file in person or by mail at the Public Service Commission, 610 N. Whitney Way, P.O. Box 7854, Madison, WI 53707-7854.
