Whether in your home or business, making smart energy improvements can help maximize comfort and minimize energy costs. Here at Michigan Saves, we’ve designed energy-efficiency and renewable energy financing programs with you in mind to help you strike that happy balance. After all, comfort and savings should go hand in hand.

That’s why we’re pleased to offer an expansive list of residential and commercial energy improvement options through our Home Energy Loan Program and Commercial Energy Financing Program. And better yet — that list just got even bigger.

As part of our commitment to providing exceptional customer service, we regularly communicate with our customers and contractors to assess their needs and gather important feedback. So, when we heard requests for more energy improvement options, we listened. Based on the input we received, we added several new measures now eligible under our residential and commercial programs.

These new eligible measures include:

Home Energy Loan Program

  • Electric vehicle charging stations
  • Micro combined heat and power (CHP) systems
  • Wind turbines
  • Whole-home generators (Note: can only be financed when there are $1,000 or more in other qualifying measures)
  • Whole-home battery storage
  • Water efficiency measures

Commercial Energy Financing Program

As winter nears, now is a great time to assess whether your home or building needs energy-efficiency upgrades to support you and your bottom line. For complete lists of eligible improvements, see our residential and commercial eligible measures.
