EGLE promotes affordable, reliable, secure and environmentally-sound energy solutions for Michiganders and encourages residential energy waste reduction. The residential sector encompasses nearly 30% of Michigan's total energy consumption. As such, it is vital for households to adopt cleaner, more efficient energy practices. Below are some financial and technical resources that can help residents improve their energy footprint without breaking the bank.
Financial Assistance Programs
The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) has approved several new tax credits and rebates to help residents with home weatherization, energy efficiency upgrades, rooftop solar installations, and even the purchase of electric vehicles.
The White House's Clean Energy for All: Tax Credits and Rebates for Families webpage summarizes these incentives. The IRA tax credits can be seized according to the guidance on the Internal Revenue Service's Inflation Reduction Act webpage.
The Home Energy Rebate Programs will be administered by EGLE and made available to apply for in late 2023.
State and Local Programs
There are a variety of State, non-profit, and utility programs that residents can use to help reduce home energy waste and costs.
- Michigan Energy Assistance Program provides energy assistance and self-sufficiency services to eligible low-income households.
- Michigan Heating, Emergency, or Weatherization Assistance Programs assist eligible low-income households with energy costs.
- Michigan Saves is a non-profit green bank that coordinates with contractors and lenders to help residents secure low-interest loans on energy projects.
- Michigan utilities offer tips, rebates, and incentives for residents to save money and energy.
