Stoughton Utilities is Hiring
We are now accepting applications to fill two open positions at SU.
 
Trim the Tree, and Your Energy Bills
As we enter the holiday season, Stoughton Utilities is reminding our customers about the benefits and advantages of energy efficient lighting options to help customers trim their holiday energy bill. To help you get started, we’ll even give you a strand of LED holiday lights and a light timer for free!

You can bring in a strand of incandescent holiday lights to recycle and exchange for free LED holiday lights. We have your choice of multi-colored and white LED lights, and new for 2017 you have your choice of either standard or mini bulb sizes.

Also new for 2017, we are collecting non-perishable food donations for the Stoughton Food Pantry. If you bring in one or more food items, you will receive your choice of an indoor or outdoor holiday light timer.

LED holiday lights use up to 90 percent less energy, cost significantly less to operate, last longer than standard incandescent lights, and also reduce the risk of fire hazards since they do not have the same components that cause traditional lights to burn out or combust. When combined with a timer so you never forget to turn the lights off overnight, your savings increase even more.

This year, upgrade your lights and celebrate safely and economically!

This program offering runs through December 21, while supplies last.

Upgrade to a "Smart" Thermostat and start saving

Stoughton Utilities is offering our customers bill credit incentives when they purchase "Smart" thermostats and/or ENERGY STAR® qualified appliances!

Did you know that as much as half of the energy used in your home goes to interior space heating and cooling. Making smart decisions about your home’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems can make a big impact on your utility bills and your comfort.

A smart thermostat saves up to $120 annually, and typically pays for itself in the first two years -- and we want to help you buy one! New for 2017, if you purchase a new, currently-qualified Smart Thermostat, we'll give you a $25 bill credit incentive.

Upgrade your appliances with ENERGY STAR

The average household spends about $2,000 a year on energy costs. Appliances and electronics account for about 30 percent of that amount. ENERGY STAR® qualified appliances incorporate advanced technologies that use 10-50% less energy and water than standard models, without sacrificing any features or convenience! Look for the ENERGY STAR logo whenever purchasing new appliances or devices.

Stoughton Utilities has partnered with Wisconsin Focus on Energy, ENERGY STAR, and participating retailers to make these high-performing, high-quality products more affordable. That means you’ll save on your purchase, you’ll save year after year and you’ll help save the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

New for 2017, Stoughton Utilities customers can receive a $25 bill credit incentive upon the purchase of certain ENERGY STAR rate products. Incentives are available for ENERGY STAR dehumidifiers, clothes dryers, clothes washers, dishwashers, freezers, refrigerators, and air purifiers.

Completed forms and sales receipts must be received prior to December 1, 2017. Limit one Smart Thermostat incentive and two ENERGY STAR Appliance incentives per customer, subject to available program funding.

About Stoughton's Street Lighting
Stoughton Utilities owns and maintains most street lighting within its service territory. 755 street lights are installed throughout Stoughton and the surrounding townships. 78% of street lights are equipped with 250-watt high pressure sodium (HPS) fixtures, and 22% are equipped with 150-watt energy-efficient Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights (250-watt equivalent).

Seasonal Energy Assistance Information
For some customers, including seniors on fixed incomes, energy expenses can be a financial burden. Many here in our community cannot afford the energy to meet their basic needs.

Wisconsin's Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP) provides for assistance with heating costs, electric costs (regardless of heat source), and energy crisis situations. Energy assistance is a one-time benefit payment provided to income qualifying residents during the winter heating season (October 1 through May 15). The amount of the energy assistance benefit varies according to household size, income level, and household energy costs.

Stoughton Utilities customers living in Dane County can call (608) 267-8601 to schedule an appointment to apply for assistance. For additional information on how to apply for energy assistance, please call toll-free 1-866-HEATWIS (1-866-432-8947) ...
