About this grant

Based in southeast Michigan, EcoWorks is working to drive down municipal utility costs and encourage communitywide energy initiatives. The technical expertise and services it provides to municipalities in the region is important given the ongoing lack of technical expertise, limited staff time, and fiscal constraints faced by many municipalities. With prior Mott support, the grantee and partner organizations expanded energy management services to approximately 30 mid-sized cities in southeast Michigan. With continued support, the grantee will build on the energy management planning progress that was achieved by the participating municipalities and focus on implementation of the clean energy projects identified.
