Michigan Saves is an innovative program that will make energy efficiency upgrades and installing renewable energy systems more affordable for all types of Michigan energy consumers—businesses, local governments, and residents. Michigan Saves will finance the installation of energy efficiency measures and renewable energy systems with no upfront cost to utility customers.

In June 2009, Public Sector Consultants, with its technical partner, the Delta Institute, was awarded a grant from the Michigan Public Service Commission to design and implement Michigan Saves. The Michigan Saves team will work with utilities, vendors, and other stakeholders in the coming months to establish the parameters of the program, including the identification and design of pilot projects, as well as the administrative structure, financing tools, contracts, and operational procedures used by Michigan Saves and its partners.

Information about opportunities to contribute to the design process, as well as updates on Michigan Saves and pilot programs, will be available on the Michigan Saves website, to be launched in August 2009. In the meantime, you may contact Amy Rittenhouse at Public Sector Consultants, at (517) 484-4954 or arittenhouse@pscinc.com.
