Energy & Sustainability

Energy use is a major expense for MCES -- approximately $15 million per year. Through energy conservation and increased use of renewable energy, however, MCES is achieving considerable economic and environmental benefits, lowering costs and reducing air emissions like carbon dioxide.

MCES 2015 Energy Goal is to reduce MCES facilities’ estimated purchase of energy for continuing operations by 25% as compared to 2006 baseline use by year end 2015 - while achieving or exceeding current levels of service - and 50% by 2020.
