Michigan Saves is a nonprofit dedicated to making energy improvements easier for all Michigan energy consumers. To accomplish this, Michigan Saves makes affordable financing and other incentives available through grants and partnerships with private sector lenders. We also authorize and monitor a network of contractors and recognize those with advanced training. Our current portfolio includes programs for residential, commercial, and municipal customers, and supports energy efficiency, geothermal, and solar PV projects. Michigan Saves was established in 2009 through a grant from the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC). The grant allowed a two-year period to establish the organization and an initial portfolio of programs to support energy installations. In September of 2011, the organization became fully independent. Governed by a 15-member board of directors and a special policy adviser appointed by the MPSC, Michigan Saves has no employees but is staffed by contract with Public Sector Consultants and the Delta Institute. Michigan Saves has been awarded several grants by state of Michigan agencies and by the Department of Energy to expand and enhance its programs.
