How to Save Energy

Voluntarily curtail your energy use.

To curb the use of electricity and water, ZBPW has teamed up with the City of Zeeland and MI Energy Smart Incentives to make clean energy possible for small businesses and consumers alike. 

Zeeland is a proud member of the Michigan Public Power Association, participating in three Energy Smart programs founded on the idea of making energy-efficient choices more affordable for the consumer. Rebates on LED light bulbs, HVAC equipment, and ENERGY STAR® appliances help lower energy usage every month while encouraging consumers and businesses to do the right thing for the planet. 

To learn more about your Energy Smart opportunities, visit the Energy Smart Incentive Program’s website.
