Michigan was among the earliest states to pass enabling legislation for energy saving performance contracting.  To obtain the information, enter the Public Act number(s) and year reference(s) for the original MI legislation that authorized energy performance contracts for public agencies into the legislative search engine linked below.  P.A. 400-404 of 1984; P.A. 148 of 1984; P.A. 22 of 1985; P.A. 122 of 1987 & 1989.  The 400 series is for various types of municipalities; 148 is for community colleges; 22 is for K-12 schools and 122 is for state government facilities. Effective March 2013, Public Act 625 became law, providing more guidance to state and local government agencies on making cost-effective energy improvements in public buildings; and assigning responsibility to MI Dept. of Technology, Management & Budget to develop a statewide process for procuring energy performance contracts to make the energy improvements.
