Energy Efficiency Grants

November 01, 2022


The Michigan Energy Office (MEO), within the Michigan Agency for Energy (MAE), provides funding for energy efficiency activities on a recurring basis, subject to availability of funds. Eligible projects may include activities such as providing education/outreach and technical assistance to communities and businesses on energy efficiency topics, utility bill analysis and Energy Star benchmarking, energy evaluations and audits, demonstrations of commercially available energy efficiency technologies, and/or other activities that promote energy efficiency as an affordable, reliable, adaptable, and environmentally protective energy solution. Grant award amounts vary according to each individual solicitation. Those interested in participating should contact Matthew Thomas or Roger Doherty at the Michigan Energy Office for additional details.

MEO is currently accepting proposals under its Retooling and Manufacturing Grant Opportunity. Grants are available to small businesses making capital investments to reduce waste, or those manufacturing clean energy technologies. A total of $100,000 is available under this solicitation. Individual grant awards will be from $25,000 to $50,000, and may be used for equipment costs only. Applicants must provide a 4:1 match of MEO grant funds, and are encouraged to use Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) or On-Bill Financing for all or some of the match. Final proposals are due September 26, 2016. Complete information and instructions may be found in the RFP.
