Making Multifamily Homes More Enjoyable Places to Live

Leslie Etterbeek wants the best for her tenants. A property manager for LR Management, Etterbeek oversees more than a dozen properties and treats each one like her own home. This dedication is what prompted Etterbeek to sign up for energy-efficiency financing through Michigan Saves. She had the lightbulbs in the common areas changed to more energy-efficient LED bulbs. Already, Etterbeek is seeing a difference, saying the bulbs’ uniformity and the cost savings are the most noticeable changes. “It’s good for the long run,” Etterbeek said. “The light bulbs last, but there is also a nice aesthetic to them.”

Leslie cut her energy usage in half.
