achieved by its Shared Savings energy efficiency program.
In 2006, WP&L achieved electric energy savings of more than 11.6 MW and 66 million

therms of natural gas savings, or enough to supply 1,600 homes for a year, were also

financing through the Shared Savings program.

improvements, we project similar levels of customer participation and savings
