There have been some very exciting developments recently at Michigan Energy Options.
We finally finished our grant with the Lansing School District for the 2010-2011 school year, teaching 2025 kids from 86 classrooms about composting and recycling. We are happy to report we will be repeating the same grant for the 2011-2012 school year.
Additionally, we are ramping up for the end of our performance period for LEED Existing Buildings Operations & Maintenance Certification. I can’t believe that it has almost been a whole year. We have the entire staff working diligently on tracking all of the 46 credits we are attempting (which will hopefully result in Platinum certification!). It is a considerable amount to organize, but an exciting challenge.
For the Heart of Michigan Branch, there will be a lunch and learn soon for construction management professionals focused on green building. I’ll keep you posted on that as more information becomes available. The lunch will most likely be in the Lansing area. You can also check back at http://www.usgbcwm.org/.
Hope everyone is having a great summer!
