Through energy conservation and efficiency, Michigan has emerged as a leader in innovative, effective practices. As Governor Rick Snyder mentioned in his special message on energy in 2012:
“Energy efficiency doesn’t mean doing less; it means doing as much or more, but using less energy to get it done. Energy efficiency is the best example of a no-regrets policy Michigan can have.”
These awards celebrate outstanding achievements in energy excellence, and seek to recognize people and organizations that have taken firm, meaningful actions to stop energy waste. Nominations can be made in eight award categories that demonstrate the diverse nature of the way energy efficiency can be deployed in our great state. To honor the award finalists, a celebration will be hosted by the Governor’s Energy Excellence Awards Steering Committee in Fall 2017.
