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.
Summer is heating up—and with the higher temperatures come increased energy use and greater demand. All of these factors can have a significant impact on the rates we pay for electricity. That’s why now is a good time to take a look back at some of our previous discussions on rates and infrastructure investments.
Building a brighter, cleaner energy future for all Michiganders isn’t just an investment in upgrading our state’s energy sector or electric infrastructure. It’s an investment in jobs, in local businesses, and in our communities.
Aside from delivering reliable, affordable, and increasingly clean power for Michigan homes, businesses, and industries, one of the most important things our local energy providers do is support local communities across the state through a number of civic engagement and community development projects.
