Energy Efficiency for Michigan K-12 Schools

From 2009-2011, the Michigan Renewable Schools Program provided comprehensive energy efficiency assistance to selected Michigan K-12 schools. Sixty-seven school facilities participated in the initial pilot and currently save over $400,000 annually as a result of the program.

The Ecology Center in partnership with the Michigan School Business Officials and Michigan Saves, funded through the C.S. Mott Foundation, is pleased to announce that this program is recommencing and new resources are being allocated for K-12 school energy efficiency projects. The program provides the experience and resources to support K-12 facility efforts to save money, reduce operating expenses, and improve classroom environments.
