Owners of commercial and industrial property in the U.S. spend $202 billion each year on energy for their operations – yet 30% of that cost is unnecessary. That's $60 billion wasted every year due to inefficiency.
Virtually any business owner can participate in Lean & Green Michigan™ -- once its county, city or township has signed on. If you own commercial, industrial or multi-family property (five units and up) and you want to reduce your energy or water costs or install renewable energy equipment, Lean & Green Michigan™ can work for you. Unfortunately, under Michigan's PACE law single-family residential properties are not eligible.
Property owners who undertake a PACE project with Lean & Green Michigan™ enjoy the following features:
Property owners start by performing an energy audit on their facilities to determine the most cost effective energy interventions. If you have not done an audit and cannot perform one on your own, Lean & Green Michigan™ can connect you with contractors who are expert in these matters.
Once you know what you want to do, you should get in touch with Lean & Green Michigan™ and fill out an application to have your project evaluated.
How will you finance your PACE project? Lean & Green Michigan™ uses a market-based approach to funding projects. We help property owners work with their own banks or find new sources of capital. Many data points about a company and its property factor into the finance equation. We are happy to work with property owners to find the best solution for them.
