The Electric Self-Directed program lets you run your own electric efficiency program for your business.
The Electric Self-Directed program is for businesses that have an annual peak demand of one megawatt or greater, whether at a single site or combined across multiple sites. If you’re not sure whether your business qualifies, check your billing history or contact us anytime. We’ll answer any questions that you have.
When you participate in the Electric Self-Directed program, you’re taking on the responsibility of developing your own energy efficiency programs, and Michigan law requires you to achieve annual savings of at least 1%. You can, of course, exceed those savings and save your business even more.
You will need to submit a plan every two years that will be reviewed by our program team before you are set to self-direct. You will also have to file an annual report of your implemented efficiency measures and energy saved. It’s due on March 1 of each year, reporting on the previous year’s efforts. We share these reports with the Michigan Public Service Commission, and in some cases they may ask you for additional information.
