Incentive Size and Funding SourceDue to strong demand for Milwaukee Energy Efficiency (Me2) incentives and financing, the Me2 business program is no longer directly offering federal rebates for projects. However, Me2 still offers financing, and has teamed up with the Focus on Energy Small Business program to help you reduce the energy bills and improve buildings for small businesses.

The Me2 & Focus on Energy Small Business Program provides free assessments to identify energy saving opportunities. The program helps small businesses start saving energy and money right away, with the immediate installation of free energy-saving products such as lighting and faucet aerators. Then, Me2 provides financing from Summit Credit Union to help small businesses afford bigger projects for exterior lighting, new heating or cooling equipment, refrigeration, etc. Summit Credit Union provides financing for energy efficiency projects between $5,000 and $20,000.
