Consumers Energy presented an $118,640 incentive rebate check in March to MidMichigan Health as part of the utility’s Energy Efficiency program, a key component of Michigan’s landmark energy reform law.
The non-profit health system received the rebate for installing an energy efficient air conditioning system, chillers and geothermal heat pumps at its MidMichigan Medical Center – Midland Campus. The improvements are expected to save MidMichigan Health 480,309 kilowatt-hours of electricity annually. The incentives are offered under Consumers Energy’s Business Solutions program, made possible by the Clean, Renewable, and Efficient Energy Act of 2008.
“Consumers Energy has made a promise to the people of Michigan for 125 years to deliver energy when and where people need it,” said Catherine Reynolds, the utility’s vice president, deputy general counsel and corporate secretary of CMS Energy and Consumers Energy. “With more than 150 energy efficiency incentives and rebates available from Consumers Energy, improving efficiency in businesses and non-profit organizations like MidMichigan Health is easier than ever. Using less electricity helps customers save money and helps Consumers Energy fulfill our promise to Michigan.”
MidMichigan Health has been an active participant in the Energy Efficiency program, and has completed more than 20 energy-saving projects. The incentive check brings MidMichigan Health’s incentive total to $230,000.
