Energy Services assists, educates, and encourages Michigan communities to advance conservation and efficient use of energy resources in order to provide a healthier environment and achieve greater energy security for future generations.

Air sealing, insulating, installing higher performance HVAC systems, replacing old lights with LEDs, and upgrading your windows are just a few easy ways to improve energy efficiency. The next step is to make the jump to renewables like wind and solar. These clean energy sources are critical to improving air quality in Michigan, protecting the health of residents, and fostering a vibrant green economy.

Energy Services works with citizens groups, local governments, public school systems, and other community-based entities through innovation, education, partnerships, and financial and technical assistance. By working together to deploy smarter energy choices, we can reach the energy goals of our communities faster and more efficiently!
