At Michigan Energy Options (MEO), we are dedicated to guiding communities towards realizing the economic, social, and environmental benefits of energy efficiency and renewable energy. MEO achieves this mission through three main approaches, including operating utility energy efficiency programs across the state, developing and implementing community-based renewables projects, and providing technical consulting and services. With a keen focus on providing practical, cost-effective solutions to complex energy issues, MEO works with for-profit and nonprofit partners to achieve greater collective impact. Since 2008, we have successfully implemented over 90 programs, making a positive impact on the communities, residents, and businesses we serve.
MEO has a strong commitment to helping communities across the state of Michigan realize the benefits of energy efficiency and renewable energy. In recent years, our work in both the Lower and Upper Peninsulas has taken us to all 83 counties in the state.
With our partners, MEO operates a range of energy programs that help individuals, businesses, and communities adopt more sustainable practices. These programs are designed to address complex energy issues that communities face by providing practical, cost-effective solutions that help create long-lasting, positive change.
Since 2008, we have had the privilege of reaching more than 2 million people in Michigan through our programs. This has allowed us to make a significant impact on the economic, social, and environmental health of communities throughout the state. Our approach is centered on collaboration, and we work with a variety of partners, including non-profits, for-profits, utilities, and government agencies, to create the greatest collective impact possible.
At MEO, we believe in the power of local solutions to drive positive change. We understand that there is a renewed interest in all things local – local economy, local foods, and local energy. Communities across the state are looking for ways to revitalize downtowns with thriving local businesses and food options, and to support local energy that is sustainable, efficient, and cost-effective.
MEO is dedicated to helping communities achieve these goals through our expertise in driving projects that promote greater energy efficiency in buildings and increase the generation of renewable energy, such as solar power. We work closely with local businesses, non-profits, and government agencies to develop practical and cost-effective solutions that help communities meet their energy needs while supporting local economic growth.
Our commitment to local solutions extends to all areas of our work. We believe that by supporting local solutions, we can strengthen local economies and create more sustainable communities. By working with local partners, we can tailor our programs to meet the unique needs of each community we serve, ensuring that we are delivering the greatest impact possible.
