[ARCHIVED] Jackson has most energy-efficient buildings for a small city in nation

Downtown Jackson June 2021

Jackson continues to be Michigan’s clean energy capital after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced it has more ENERGY STAR-certified buildings than any small city in the nation! The ranking confirms the commitment by Jackson and its energy provider, Consumers Energy, to providing building owners and managers with the technical guidance, best practices, and training they need to make their buildings more energy efficient, save money, and reduce carbon emissions.

The EPA announced that it gave ENERGY STAR certifications to 41 buildings in Jackson last year, more than any other community of its size across the country. Cities are ranked on the list according to how many buildings in their area achieved ENERGY STAR certification in 2022. Buildings can receive this special certification when they take certain measures to reduce energy waste and receive an ENERGY STAR score based on these actions.

This is the fourth consecutive year Jackson has topped the EPA’s ENERGY STAR ranking for small cities. “The City of Jackson is thrilled to have this honor. Work is ongoing in our City government to make sure more buildings are energy-efficient and we build green infrastructure,” said City Manager Jonathan Greene. “This really reflects the close collaboration Consumers Energy has with our community businesses and organizations.”

“Consumers Energy is thrilled our hometown is No. 1 again in making buildings more efficient and reducing energy waste,” said Lauren Snyder, Consumers Energy’s vice president of customer experience. “Jackson demonstrates every day how the energy solutions that we provide can transform a community, saving money for our customers and protecting the planet.”
