The Efficiency United Program, administered by CLEAResult Consulting, provides commercial gas incentives for the following Michigan utilities:

Efficiency United
Michigan Gas Utilities
Semco Energy
Wisconsin Public Service Corp
XCEL Energy

The "Michigan Public Clean, Renewable, and Efficient Energy Act" (Public Act 295 passed in 2008) provided original authorization to create utility energy efficiency programs across the state. Commercial and industrial (C&I) customers can participate in prescriptive programs that provide incentives for the installation of energy-efficient products and equipment. Reduced energy use from peak shaving, demand limiting, fuel switching, power generation, or operating schedule changes does not qualify. To qualify, equipment must operate a minimum of 1,500 hours per year. Applicants can complete online forms with attachments of invoices and all project costs and contact their local power company for more information or an application. Incentive dollar amounts are based upon the annual forecasted reduction at the time of project pre-approval.
