It costs over $5 billion a year to provide fuel and electricity for Michigan residences. While homeowners, renters, and builders have taken many actions to improve the energy efficiency of new and existing houses, there are many opportunities for additional improvements. The Michigan Energy Office provides a variety of services to help consumers identify and select energy efficiency measures. The Energy Office partners with the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Dept. of Energy to promote ENERGY STAR homes, appliances, and electronic equipment. As the government-backed, trusted symbol for energy efficiency, the ENERGY STAR label identifies high efficiency homes and products.
Additionally, the Michigan Energy Office currently supports eight "Michigan Energy Demonstration Centers" located throughout the State. The Michigan Energy Demonstration Centers promote energy efficiency, renewable energy, green building and sustainable living solutions for Michigan residents and businesses.
