Energy efficiency is a vital component of Michigan’s energy future, helping improve reliability, control consumer costs, and reduce the overall strain on our electric grid.
A more energy-efficient Michigan is a stronger Michigan. Efforts to reduce energy waste and increase efficiency are underway at every level of our energy system, from how we produce energy to how we deliver it and how we each use it.
It’s a new year and plenty of new opportunities to strengthen Michigan’s energy future lie ahead. In 2019, local energy companies are making great progress toward a set of resolutions that bolster the reliability, affordability, and sustainability of our energy supply.
Believe it or not, it’s about to get even colder in Michigan. The polar vortex has been described as “brutal,” “dangerous,” and even “the coldest weather in a generation.” We can hold our own when it comes to winter weather, but the storm currently whipping its way through the Midwest is no joke.
Local Michigan energy companies are continuing to diversify our all-of-the-above energy mix. As coal-fired plants continue to close their doors, Michigan and our Midwestern neighbors are capitalizing on innovative ways to prevent a potential energy deficit. Natural gas is an affordable, reliable and cleaner way to provide the energy our state needs to operate. How are we harnessing the power of natural gas? The NEXUS pipeline is playing a big role!
