Solar Energy Incentive

Why go solar?

Solar panels convert the sun’s energy - even on a cloudy day - to electricity.

With help from River Falls Municipal Utilities and Focus on Energy you can get solar on you home at a much lower up-front cost. 

River Falls Municipal Utilities

RFMU matches the Focus on Energy incentive for solar up to $1000. All projects must be approved by Focus on Energy to receive a RFMU incentive. Our application is here.

Interconnection Agreements for Installers and Developers

At the beginning of 2020, the Wisconsin Public Service Commission updated the two necessary distributed generation interconnection agreements. The new forms should be used in place of the original application forms, known as forms 6027 and 6028. The new forms consist of one single base application form and a series of technology specific attachments. The two forms can be found below. Please submit forms via email to Mike Noreen. If you have questions, contact Mike Noreen by email or call 715-426-3467.

Wisconsin Focus on Energy

Wisconsin Focus on Energy provides Cash-Back Rewards and grants for eligible Wisconsin residents and businesses to install renewable energy systems, such as solar hot water, solar electric, and wind. Cash-back rewards typically cover 20 to 25 percent of the installed cost of the system, making renewable energy systems more affordable. For complete incentive information and eligibility guidelines, visit the website

Certified Site Assessment

Before moving forward with any renewable energy project, all projects must have a Home Energy Assessment completed. The Home Energy Assessment will show you where you can reduce your energy consumption through conservation and energy efficiency measures. As part of the assessment, up to 15 LED will be installed in your home. The cost of the assessment is $25 when installing solar. See the application here.
