Objective: To reduce energy consumption with a building modernization program.

Work Completed: Alger County agreed to implement a building modernization program to upgrade infrastructure across three facilities in Munising, Mich. The energy retrofit initiative, backed by guaranteed savings through a 15-year, $1.4 million performance contract with Honeywell, will enable the county to address deferred maintenance, reduce energy and water consumption, and improve occupant comfort while freeing up funds in the county’s operating budget. Utility and operating cost savings is estimated at more than $114,000 annually.

“Resources are continuing to shrink for many government entities, so we must find creative solutions to ensure we can effectively maintain our physical assets while serving our community. Working with Honeywell, we’re able to improve our outlook by significantly cutting annual energy and operating costs through guaranteed savings, which we believe will make a significant impact in our ability to serve our residents.”
