Michigan Saves Financing
Michigan Saves financing is financial capital made available to customers through a network of lenders that offer favorable terms based on a negotiated contract. This program helps Michigan organizations reduce costs by financing energy-efficient lighting, heating and cooling systems, insulation, appliances, water heaters, and more. Upgrades are made with the help of our authorized contractors and an authorized lending partner.
