LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan Agency for Energy (MAE) and Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) today announced that its leased office building in Lansing has earned the respected ENERGY STAR certification for the second consecutive year. Certification is awarded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to buildings that meet strict energy waste reduction standards.
“ENERGY STAR-certified buildings use less energy, are less expensive to operate than their peers and showcase ways to reduce energy waste,” said Anne Armstrong Cusack, MAE executive director. “The Michigan Agency for Energy and the Michigan Public Service Commission are leading by example by continuing to look for ways to improve energy efficiency in the workplace.”
The ENERGY STAR designation is open to commercial buildings, industrial plants and other buildings. Click here for information on how to apply for certification.
“We encourage other Michigan building owners and operators to pursue this certification to reduce energy waste,” Armstrong added.
For insight into pursuing ENERGY STAR certification a second time, see this Q & A with Joy Wang, of the Michigan Energy Office, who coordinated the process at MAE/MPSC.
