Last Year for Michigan Utility Energy Efficiency Rebates 
Energy News

by MTI Energy Management / Lighting Specialists, Inc.

Michigan utilities are entering into the last year of a three year utility rebate program that offers rebates to commercial customers that make energy efficient improvements to their buildings.

Be aware that the response to this program has been overwhelming. DTE exhausted 2010 funding for the program in May of this year. New applications were placed on a waiting list with no guarantee of receiving rebates. DTE will begin taking new applications sometime in October 2010 for the last year of the program which is set to end in 2011.  Response will surely be high. Rebate applications will be processed on a first come first served basis.

To verify eligibility a qualified Michigan contractor should be consulted before making changes. Do it yourself improvements may not qualify for rebate under the program. Check with a contractor or your utility representative before moving ahead.

Recent utility rate increases mean Michigan businesses are paying higher energy bills. Those that fail to reduce their energy consumption by taking advantage of the rebate programs will most likely pay more for electricity and gas in the future as demand is reduced.

Although rebates are available for a number of electrical and gas saving improvements, lighting upgrades should be considered first since they tend to have a quicker return on investment than other types of improvements.

In addition, new government lighting regulations are taking effect that will phase out standard T12 fluorescent lamps and ballasts that were used extensively in older lighting systems. Soon replacement T12 lamps and ballasts will not be available and fixtures will need to be upgraded or replaced with new technology.

MTI is a Michigan based energy management company that specializes in energy efficient lighting upgrades.

Call 248-446-9502 or email gzaplitny@mti-energy.com to schedule a lighting survey or to learn more. Ask about our lighting maintenance program.
