Zero Energy Buildings: Skilled Trades in Partnership Legislative Event Report

This session at the MI State Capitol aimed to connect state policymakers with zero-energy-building advocates to educate policymakers on what is needed to advance zero-energy buildings in Michigan.

We had 30 different offices of House and Senate representatives and/or their staff in attendance, and this included 85 people in total who attended or checked in throughout the session.

I am thrilled that within one week of the event, the Michigan Senate passed some significant clean energy legislation that will play a role in advanced zero-energy buildings!

A huge thanks to our panelists, Matt HollanderKortney LullMatt Dunham, and Rob Kaercher, who discussed these important topics and how they impact their work.

This event is jointly hosted by:
GreenHome Institute (GHI) (Significant help from our member Dale Hulst Michigan Net Zero Homes LLC)
Great Lakes Renewable Energy Association
Michigan Energy Efficiency Contractors Association
Michigan Geothermal Energy Association
Michigan Air Conditioning Contractors Association (MIACCA)

If you live in Michigan (or any state), consider contacting your representatives and sharing our resources, and please tell them you support zero-energy buildings!  Here are some additional resources you may share.
