Northwest Michigan Council of Governments Celebrates Wexford County’s Energy Efficiency Efforts

NORTHWEST MI—The Northwest Michigan Council of Governments (NWMCOG) recognized Wexford County for its energy efficiency initiatives at the Board of Commissioners’ December meeting.

NWMCOG presented the County Board members with a plaque honoring the work they have done to save taxpayer dollars and reduce energy consumption.

A grant to NWMCOG from the Michigan Public Service Commission supported the efficiency upgrades. The grant provided the county with funding for analysis and improvements. The county used the grant funding to upgrade lighting at the courthouse and other facilities. The NWMCOG expects the upgrades to save the county nearly $10,000 per year on utility costs.

The grant program, managed by the NWMCOG, made similar investments to 20 local governments across the ten-county region it serves.
