Efficiency First

Energy efficiency is the most cost effective way to create jobs, save money and support a local clean energy economy.

Not only does energy efficiency save on energy costs and create jobs, it also lowers carbon emissions and supports economic activity.  Furthermore, lowering energy demand saves us from having to build new coal plants in the future.

In 2011, the Michigan Public Service Commission released a report showing that every dollar invested in energy efficiency created $4 in energy savings.
