Focus on Energy is Wisconsin utilities’ statewide energy efficiency and renewable resource program. The program works with eligible Wisconsin residents to install cost-effective energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. These energy projects:
Help Wisconsin residents manage rising energy costs
Promote in-state economic development
Protect our environment
Control Wisconsin’s growing demand for electricity
Focus on Energy is funded by the state’s investor-owned energy utilities, as required under Wis. Stat. § 196.374(2)(a), and participating municipal and electric cooperative utilities. To participate in Focus on Energy programs, residents must be customers of a participating utility. All Wisconsin WPPI Energy member utilities participate in Focus on Energy through public benefits funds collected from electric customers.

The New Richmond Utility Water Department will be involved in a water main and fire hydrant flushing and valve operation program starting May 2, 2016.
This notice is to inform our customers that the flushing and valve operation will cause some areas to be without water for short periods of time and a decrease in pressure which may affect automatic flushing and pressure sensitive equipment.
Residents may also notice mineral particles in their water that can affect laundry operations. If mineral particles are detected, cold water should be run to clear out household water lines. If the problem persists, residents should contact the New Richmond Water Department at (715) 246-4167.
