Business Pilot Programs: Innovative New Ways to Save

A Culture of Innovation

We invite you to join with us in a shared culture of innovation. It’s smart business for all of us to find new ways to save energy and money while making our businesses more productive. It’s also necessary for the sustainable future of Michigan.

That’s why we collaborate with Michigan businesses to continually test new pilot programs. It’s why some of our previous pilot programs are now permanent members of our energy efficiency offerings. And it’s why we’ll try out new pilot programs in the years ahead.

Let’s work together to shape the future and see how energy efficient we can become. Interested?
