Michigan Homes, Businesses Save $575 Million via Energy Efficiency Programs

Consumers Energy’s Energy Efficiency Programs Were Launched in 2009

JACKSON, Mich. — Michigan households and businesses have saved $575 million through 2013 by taking advantage of Consumers Energy’s energy efficiency programs, lowering their natural gas and electric bills, and providing a boost to the state’s economic recovery.

“Michigan residents are using our energy efficiency programs to manage their bills. It’s a powerful tool to free up money for household budgets, especially during a cold winter like this one,” said Garrick Rochow, Consumers Energy’s vice president of customer operations and quality.

“Put the $575 million in energy efficiency savings in perspective: This is enough to power 450,000 homes with electricity and heat 180,000 homes with natural gas for a year. Just as valuable, energy efficiency provides homes and businesses with savings that continue year after year.”

Consumers Energy’s energy efficiency programs were launched in 2009. People can receive rebates in more than 200 ways, from efficient lighting to HVAC tune-ups, with savings typically lasting 10 years beyond the equipment’s installation.

Energy efficiency also creates Michigan jobs, primarily through trade allies. Consumers Energy works with 2,100 Michigan-based energy efficiency contractors, including businesses in HVAC, insulation, appliances, lighting, and more.
