  • Offset costs: Take advantage of cash incentives for energy-saving equipment and efforts.
  • Improve property value: Did you know energy efficiency can take care of mold, ice dams, and hot or cold rooms?
  • Be more productive and comfortable: Energy-efficient businesses tend to have healthier, more productive employees. Residents report feeling better in their homes.

Energy Optimization program history

The MECA collaborative started offering Energy Optimization programs in 2009 after Michigan Public Act 295 was signed into law. This Act expanded energy efficiency efforts with the goal of achieving greater energy security and better serving you. It also supports the development of clean and renewable energy and improving air quality.
