While school’s out, many of Michigan’s K-12 schools are making energy efficiency upgrades that will cut energy bills and keep more dollars in the classroom.
Ionia Public Schools stands out as the only Michigan school district that has ENERGY STAR certified buildings and has received a rebate from the Michigan Energy Office to switch to LED lighting.
When students return to the classroom, they may not notice all the changes, but the school’s energy bills will be 18 to 21 percent lower, compared to 2006.

Michigan Agency for Energy has established the Farm Tap Appliance Rebate program
The Michigan Agency for Energy has established the Farm Tap Appliance Rebate program to encourage homeowners who get natural gas from a “farm tap” to switch to another fuel such as utility-supplied natural gas, propane or wood pellets.
Eligible home/property owners could be eligible for up to $1,500 in appliance rebates. Appliances eligible for the rebate include range ovens, hot water heaters, furnace, clothes dryer, and smart devices, such as thermostats.
