Michigan homeowners saving more energy, money with New Home Construction program

As our New Home Construction program kicked off a new building season, we wanted to reflect on the achievements from 2016.

Last year alone, 2.9 million square feet of ENERGY STAR® living space was constructed in the program, saving over 274,000 kWh of electricity. That’s equivalent to 20 homes’ energy use for one year, according to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency calculations. With savings like that, it’s no surprise that Consumers Energy is excited to continue supporting ENERGY STAR new home construction.
