About this grant

Like many municipalities in Michigan, local governments in the Traverse City area lack the capacity to fully implement clean energy solutions. Without the benefit of a dedicated energy manager, municipalities are often not in a position to take advantage of available programs and benefits that come from a strategic and consistent focus on energy efficiency practices and renewable technologies. With this grant, SEEDS, a local nonprofit, will utilize its strong technical background and established role as a convener to provide energy management services to the city and county governments, including the municipally owned utility.
