Municipal Energy Planning

The Municipal Energy Planning project provides energy management planning services to municipalities in Southeast Michigan. Working closely with municipal staff, SCI Energy Analysts develop a comprehensive, tailored energy plan to reduce operating costs and support clean energy initiatives.

The Municipal Energy Planning project is supported by the C.S. Mott Foundation.

Michigan - Energy Efficiency for All (MEEFA)

The Michigan Energy Efficiency for All (MEEFA) campaign strives to improve the health and quality of life of families in affordable housing while also working to promote equitable housing policy. Supported by the National Housing Trust and the National Resource Defense Council with funding from the Energy Foundation, Energy Efficiency For All is a national effort.

 

EcoWorks is proud to administer the Michigan portion with our funded partners the Michigan Environmental Council in Lansing and the Ecology Center in Ann Arbor, as well as join with the Community Economic Development Association of Michigan (CEDAM) in their related but separately funded work. The MEEFA effort has been underway for a year’s time and we are excited to engage, push change and grow our network as we enter our second year of activity. Specifically our work focuses on affordable multifamily housing which make up 9% of the State’s housing stock.

Soil Lead Remediation Project

The soil lead remediation project seeks to test the suitability of soil amendments on Detroit parcels contaminated with “urban” sources of lead. The goal of this work is to identify a low-cost remedial method of rendering soil lead not bioavailable to plants and animals.

This project is a collaboration between EcoWorks, Earthworks Farms and Wayne State University.

Are you concerned about lead? We are currently seeking residents for participation in our soil lead remediation project. You can call us at 313-894-1030 or email soilleadtest@gmail.com
