Pittsfield Township is being awarded $138,398 in stimulus money to improve its energy efficiency.
Township Supervisor Mandy Grewal said the grant will be used to make buildings more energy-efficient and promote residential energy-savings practices.
“Pittsfield Township will audit its facilities to identify potential energy-saving upgrades and retrofits with a goal of a 10 percent savings in energy costs and pollution reduction,” she said in a statement. “Development of a public energy conservation education program will be a top priority, and we will have an educational campaign to inspire residents to initiate energy conservation techniques in their homes and businesses.”
The grant was issued by the Michigan Department of Labor & Economic Growth’s Bureau of Energy Systems. It was designed to assist public entities to develop and implement projects to improve energy efficiency and reduce fossil fuel emissions.
