GLRPPR Sector Resource: Sault Tribe Building Efficiency Energy Audits

Sault Tribe Building Efficiency Energy Audits

The Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians is working to reduce energy consumption and expense in Tribally-owned governmental buildings. The Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians will conducted energy audits of nine Tribally-owned governmental buildings in three counties in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to provide a basis for evaluating and selecting the technical and economic viability of energy efficiency improvement options. Findings and analysis reports were required for buildings as completed, and a complete Energy Audit Summary Report was submitted with the provider's final billing. Conducting energy audits of the nine governmental buildings disclosed building inefficiencies to prioritize and address, resulting in reduced energy consumption and expense. These savings allowed Tribal resources to be reallocated to direct services, which will benefit Tribal members and families.
