Paper Abstract

For many midwest and northeast states, the cost of energy is an important consideration in their efforts to achieve economic recovery. Certainly this is true of Michigan. Eighty-seven percent of Michigan's 1981 energy needs were purchased from out-of-state sources. In 1982, the Energy Administration estimates that about $9 billion will leave the state to pay for energy imported from other states and countries, providing investment capitol and jobs there, rather than in Michigan. While containing energy costs makes a great deal of sense in Michigan, the problem of how to do it on a scale large enough to make a convincing difference has been difficult. This paper describes a current effort by the Energy Administration, Michigan Department of Commerce, which, we believe, represents a breakthrough in marketing energy conservation.
