After months of prep work building partnerships between local governments, K-12 schools, electric and gas utilities, local businesses, non-profit organizations, individual volunteers, and so many others, MCEC was officially recognized as one of 50 communities across the nation to participate in the Georgetown University Energy Prize! MCEC is the only community in Indiana participating in the competition.
Semifinalists will be competing throughout 2015 and 2016 to see who can reduce their residential and municipal electricity and natural gas use compared to their baseline. Participants will also be judged by their ability to create a community energy reduction plan that is scalable, replicable, and that involves local K-12 schools. Review MCEC’s Energy Plan here. Let us know what you think. We would love to hear any and all feedback!
Thanks for your support! We look forward to an exciting two years!
