Michigan Efficiency Project Enters Final Stretch
The Houghton Energy Efficiency Team (HEET) has entered the final six months of a two-year initiative to make the county more energy efficient, according to TV6 in northern Michigan.
The project is being sponsored by New Power Tour, which was formed in 2014 to help upper Michigan peninsula residents generate energy efficiency and to try to win the $5 million Georgetown University Energy Prize. The project so far has replaced 79 inefficient refrigerators with Energy Star-rated units, conducted numerous LED light replacements, five gas on-demand water heater replacements and other projects and replacements. The story says that two homes will be winterized monthly.
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder announced on September 19 that discussions between the state and the regional transmission organization (RTO), Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO), have produced a plan will keep energy rates as low as possible, even as it provides regulatory assurance that monies will be spent to secure needed electric capacity.
