  • Fast Track program
    Combine our Virtual Building with shovel-ready sites and you are on the Fast Track. Our Fast Track Virtual Buildings system expedites your business move or expansion by shortening the due diligence and preconstruction phases. Check out our building plans, construction costs and timeline.
  • Request an electric or gas cost estimate
    If you are looking to locate in the WPS service territory or considering an expansion, contact us for a utility cost estimate. Several factors can influence your costs.
  • Assistance in developing business plans
    A good business plan means more than providing direction, defined goals and measuring progress. It's also required when arranging financing. We help manufacturing start-up companies develop comprehensive, effective business plans on a cost-sharing basis.
  • Business savings
    Learn how to manage your energy use and costs with these tools.
  • Builders and contractors
    Easily apply for new service, or check the status of requests, for all your building projects.
  • Need Help
    In addition to our own business assistance programs, we are tied into networks of both public and private resources. If we can't help you, we can put you in touch with the people and agencies that can.

A number of additional resources are available to assist in your economic growth efforts.
