DTE Energy Efficiency Summit Today

MEEA member, DTE Energy, will host an Energy Efficiency Summit for businesses today in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The summit is free to attend, and will be held at the Eberhard Conference Center at Grand Valley State University.  The purpose of the summit is to help business owners improve their bottom line. DTE Energy plans to aid businesses by informing them of the energy efficiency programs and incentives that are available to them.

With last year’s severe winter, including record-breaking lows, DTE Energy wants to support their business customers in preparing for the winter. This means taking advantage of available energy efficiency programs and incentives.  At the Summit, DTE Energy will provide information on low-cost energy efficiency solutions that save natural gas, as well as high-impact improvements such us HVAC system upgrades, insulation, and boilers. Business owners across all sectors will learn about low-cost and high-impact improvements that can make any business more efficient and comfortable.

Summit participants will also hear about the latest updates to DTE’s Energy Optimization Program and find out how they can participate in 2015. The summit will explore a large range of energy efficiency solutions in three categories:  popular improvements, bundled measures, and proactive steps.  Popular improvements include rooftop and boiler unit tune-ups, insulation, and pipe wrapping. Bundled measures include combining efficiency measures to achieve larger savings through DTE’s multi-measure bonus incentive. Proactive Steps prepare customers for winter weather with low-cost and simple steps to ensure facilities lower their heating costs.
