An Energy Optimization (EO) surcharge appears on the electric portion of your utility bill. This surcharge evolved from the State of Michigan mandating that all electric and gas utilities in our state institute energy savings programs. The revenues collected from the surcharge are what fund these programs. It is proposed that using less energy will save money for both utility customers and utilities themselves through not having to build new power plants to provide electricity. Less potential costs to the utility, less potential rate increases to customers.
We have specialized programs available for both our Residential and Commerical/Industrial (C&I) customers.
Energy Rebate Programs
The City of Norway’s electric customers have multiple new ways to save energy and help lower their electric bills thanks to new energy efficiency rebate programs introduced by the utility. If you wish to read about ways to save, provided by WPPI and other sources, please go to the "Money saving ideas" page on this website.
“Saving energy is one of the most important things we can do to help keep customer bills down, reduce emissions, and control long-term costs,” said Ray Anderson, City Manager. “The Norway Department of Power & Light’s new energy efficiency rebate programs are one way in which we’re working to meet that goal.”
Residential and Commercial electric customers in Norway are eligible for rebates on qualifying energy saving equipment and services.

Shed those kWhs
It may sound hard, but it actually takes little effort to change energy wasting habits. These simple actions are guaranteed to trim those excess kilowatt-hours:
Turn off equipment that is not needed during non-business hours. This includes computers, monitors, printers, copiers and task lighting.
Install lighting occupancy sensors that automatically turn lights on or off, depending on occupancy. They work well in areas that are not occupied continuously, such as conference rooms, break rooms or offices.
Adjust thermostats during “down” hours, such as a weekend. Better yet, install a programmable thermostat that will adjust the thermostat automatically.
When buying or replacing office equipment, choose ENERGY STAR® qualified models. Even if it costs more initially, you'll save over the life of the equipment.
