Clean Energy Coalition is putting $4.4 million to work in eight economically challenged Michigan cities to design, implement and sustain clean energy programs. We are deploying more than $460,000 to Detroit, Benton Harbor, Flint, Hamtramck, Highland Park, Muskegon Heights, Pontiac and Saginaw to help these cities update their municipal facilities to become more energy efficient and save money.
McGregor Library, Highland Park
Built in 1926, the McGregor Library was a centerpiece for the Highland Park community until high operating costs and a city budget crisis forced it to close in 2002. Grants from Clean Energy Coalition will help Highland Park reopen the library as a vibrant, more energy efficient building and a key educational resource in the community.
Detroit Belle Isle Conservatory
Clean Energy Coalition will help administer grants that are expected to produce a savings of nearly $30 million over 10 years, and preserve structures on Belle Isle and throughout the City of Detroit.
“We are going to apply all of our knowledge and experience gained in Detroit to put this grant money to work quickly and efficiently with the biggest bottom-line impact (for) the city and energy conservation,” said Sean Reed, founder of Clean Energy Coalition. “The projects are really just the beginning of a sustained multi-year citywide initiative.”
