You know your business best. With the Large Natural Gas Opt-Out program, save energy your own way.
The Large Gas Opt-Out program is for businesses that use more than 100,000 Mcf of natural gas a year. If you’re not sure whether you qualify, check your billing history or contact us anytime.
If your business doesn’t qualify for this program, we have many other ways for you to save. Learn more about our Business Rebates.
Participating in the program requires you to achieve an annual energy efficiency improvement equal to at least 0.75% of your present annual natural gas use. For example, if your business presently uses 200,000 Mcf of natural gas per year, we ask you to find efficiencies that would save you 1,500 Mcf at the same production volume. Call us for details on how we calculate your savings.
We ask you 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. (See this example report and template.) We share these reports with the Michigan Public Service Commission, and in some cases they may ask you for additional information.
