Since 1978, Michigan Energy Options (formerly Urban and Northern Options) has helped more than two million people in Michigan conserve energy, save money, adopt renewable energy, reduce greenhouse gases and lead more sustainable lives. Our nonprofit is a team with diverse expertise: PhD, MBA, MPA, LEED accredited, HERS and BPI trained, licensed contractors and architects, seasoned environmental and energy experts, project and financial managers–all practitioners for a greener Michigan.
From our offices in East Lansing, Marquette, and Grand Rapids, we pursue daily our mission of guiding communities toward being more sustainable and resilient through the adoption of energy efficiency and renewable energy.
We work with businesses, municipalities, utility companies and community members to achieve their energy goals — however big or small. We accomplish this work through strong collaborations with nonprofit and for-profit companies. In the ecosystem of energy nonprofits, we are known as “doers,” bringing our technical expertise, project management experience and business acumen to get things done.
