Madison, Wis.—Wisconsin communities have a new resource to boost their efforts to become more energy-efficient. A website launched by Energy On Wisconsin, a partnership between the Wisconsin State Energy Office and UW-Extension, is designed to promote sustainable energy practices through energy conservation and efficiency, renewable energy and bioenergy.
The new site at http://energyonwi.uwex.edu provides information for government officials, businesses and energy providers about current Wisconsin energy projects and needs. Users can post pictures and videos of energy projects, ask questions and take part in discussions on energy topics. The site also identifies funding and educational opportunities.
Energy On Wisconsin is unique because it enables collaboration between the state, UW-Extension, and the public and private sectors about funding, technologies, policies, projects and approaches that can move the state toward energy independence. It is a joint program of the State Energy Extension Partnership Initiative funded through the U.S. Department of Energy.
