GovernersExcell_Badge“On behalf of the state of Michigan, I would like to thank the Michigan Battle of the Buildings Program for taking steps to reduce energy waste in our state. Michigan’s reinvention is dependent on the handwork and dedication of our citizens to build a better and brighter future. By working together, we can make Michigan’ energy resources more adaptable, reliable, and affordable while preserving our environment for upcoming generations.”  ~Governor Rick Snyder

The Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program has found that a spirit of healthy competition and the opportunity for recognition are among the best drivers for participation in organization- and community-wide energy management. Competitions are a great way to inspire and motivate businesses to save money while reducing carbon pollution that contributes to climate change. ENERGY STAR applauds USGBC-West Michigan for their leadership in promoting commercial building energy efficiency, and we can’t wait to see what buildings come out on top!”  ~EPA EnergyStar
