Sun Prairie Utilities' New Facility

We want to be transparent with you, our customer. Our current office is not keeping up with the demands of our growing community.

To resolve this issue, we are working with Kueny Architects, the Utilities Commission, the City of Sun Prairie, and the Wisconsin Public Service Commission to design and hopefully receive approval to construct a new facility on Linnerud Drive. 

The new facility should adequately meet the needs of SPU for the next 30-50 years by providing numerous advancements to include the following:

  • All-electric, LEED certified, net-zero carbon design to include solar, battery storage, EV charging, geothermal HVAC, and various other sustainability measures;
  • Additional 23,000 square feet to adequately house and maintain SPU fleet and equipment;
  • Ample parking for both employees and customers;
  • Community meeting room for both utility and community use;
  • Centralized Sun Prairie location facilitating both operations and customer accessibility.


Overall, the additional space and location will provide improved operational efficiencies both now and for the foreseeable future.

This program is designed to help households struggling to pay housing costs like rent, utilities, and internet.

This nonprofit organization provides food, clothing, beds, and other vital social services. Its Emergency Assistance Program helps residents with a sudden and temporary loss of income.
