Last Year for Michigan Utility Energy Efficiency Rebates

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.

 Arena Saving Energy Thanks to GREEN Help

The City of Munising recently completed a project at the Alger Centennial Arena, one that will save energy usage and dollars for years to come. The best part is, the project was made available free of cost or excessive administrative work from the city.

In early 2010, the competitive grant application was made available to Michigan non-entitlement communities, for up to $50,000 toward implementation of energy reducing systems. Funding for these “Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grants” were made available through federal stimulus funds handed to the State of Michigan, and awarded by the state's Bureau of Energy Systems, a division of the Department of Energy, Labor, and Economic Growth (DELEG). Around 125 total grants would be awarded, with twelve of those granted to U.P. towns.

 Green Energy and American Jobs - What is government's role?

January 25, 2011

China's President Hu has left the country. And some would argue that he has taken American jobs with him.

The question then is how to develop the policies to build out this country's manufacturing base and especially the one centered on renewable energy. Activists and their supporters in Congress say that more government involvement is necessary, which includes not just favorable environmental laws but also lucrative tax breaks. Not so, say free marketers, who maintain that that the United States should help fund research and development but that international markets will determine where such products are made.

"As long as solar panels are getting cheaper, we shouldn't worry about where they are being produced," writes Edward Glaeser, an economics professor at Harvard, in the New York Times. "We should continue financing research  ... but we shouldn't pretend that cheaper solar energy will end up employing millions of our less-skilled citizens."

 U.S. and Russia to Share Nuclear Energy Technologies - Concerns over Nuclear Proliferation

January 24, 2011

The United States has ratified its treaty with Russia that limits the number of warheads pointing at each other. Now, the two are shifting their attention to an agreement focused on the civilian use of nuclear energy -- or the development of nuclear power.

The so-called U.S.-Russia123 Agreement also beefs up existing nuclear non-proliferation efforts. But it adds to that framework by laying the foundation so that the two can share nuclear technology for peaceful purposes. The cornerstones of the deal done earlier this month: To provide incentives to other nations to not acquire sensitive uranium enrichment technologies that could be used to build weapons and to allow for the transfer of technology, material and equipment to increase nuclear power production.

 GOP Energy Plan Takes Shape - EnergyBiz Leadership Forum 2011 Keynoter calls for 200 Nuclear Plants by 2050

January 21, 2011

An emerging group of Republican leaders in Congress are putting together the elements of a new energy plan to help define a new national energy policy.

Rep. Devin Nunes is emerging as one of the key architects of new Republican thinking on energy. His energy plan is getting attention, having been profiled in various national media outlets. With Washington in gridlock on energy, as on many other issues, the Obama administration and Democrats are waiting for the Republican positions to clarify so negotiations may begin, Nunes will speak about the Republican energy principles in a keynote address at the EnergyBiz Leadership Forum in Washington, Feb. 28 - March 1. He recently outlined his approach to energy in a commentary written for the current issue of EnergyBiz magazine. An edited version follows:

 Energy Avenues with China Open - President Obama meeting now with President Hu

January 20, 2011

If it is happening in China, it is being felt around the world. That's the unstated theme of the summit now occurring between President Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao, whose discussion will undoubtedly affect how American companies do business with the Asian nation and particularly in the area of energy.

The economic growth rate of 10 percent a year is exceeding China's own hopes. But power production there can't keep pace. It needs foreign assistance, although U.S. enterprises are complaining that they not necessarily getting a fair shake there. Meanwhile, some union organizations are protesting that the overt favoritism and artificially low currency rates are promoting their products and services and hurting jobs in this country.
