Comments to Michigan Public Service Commission on Potential Energy Waste Reduction Study

In April 2017, MEEA authored and signed-on to a set of comments submitted to the Michigan Public Service Commission. The signers to these comments included advocate groups that MEEA has convened in Michigan to support the advancement of energy efficiency in the state’s low-income communities and households, including in multifamily housing.  The comments provide input to the Michigan Public Service Commission on the assumptions and scenarios that should be incorporated into the Commission’s energy waste reduction potential study, required by 2016 PA 341 Sec. 6t. 

Multifamily Energy Efficiency Retrofits: Barriers and Opportunities for Deep Energy Savings

The potential for energy reductions in multifamily buildings is enormous; by pursuing cost-effective, deep-energy retrofits that reduce energy consumption by between 15 and 30 percent, the annual energy bill cost savings nationally could be nearly $3.4 billion.8
