The Michigan Public Clean, Renewable, and Efficient Energy Act (Public Act 295) passed in October 2008 provided original authorization to create these energy efficiency programs. The Efficiency United and Energy Optimization Programs provide residential electric and gas incentives, as well as the "Energy Depot," a set of online tools and resources to help manage home energy use and costs. Energy Depot is a free resource providing a home energy audit; homeowners can quickly estimate the annual energy use and cost of home energy systems and appliances.
- Note: Any single utility may choose which of the available technologies to offer to its customers. All incentives listed above are not available in every service area.
