Getting to Zero – Zero Net Energy 

On May 3rd, Grand Rapids 2030 District invited you to have lunch with the experts where they answered questions about ZNE (Zero Net Energy).  They discussed what’s been going on in California and talked about the ZNE buildings that are popping up all over the country (even in Detroit).

At the event, Consumers Energy rolled out a new (and aggressive) pilot program dedicated to providing the tools and resources to make ZNE buildings practical, affordable and replicable for Michigan building owners and developers.
