Wisconsin Act 141 was signed into law on March 17, 2006, and required Wisconsin energy utilities to establish and fund statewide energy efficiency and renewable resource programs.
Act 141 rates
WPS is required to transfer 1.20 percent of their annual electric and natural gas revenues for this purpose. This amount is included in your current rates. WPS rates can be found in the electric and natural gas Wisconsin rate book.
Large energy customer cap
Large energy customers are identified by the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW) as defined in Wis. Stat. § 196.374 (1) (em). Act 141 contributions by large energy customers are capped at the large energy customer’s 2005 program fees. Because program fees are already included in your rates, you will see a monthly credit for Act 141 fees and a daily charge for 2005 contribution. Learn more
