Green Pittsfield
Pittsfield Charter Township was awarded $138,398 in stimulus funds in 2010 to improve energy efficiency through the State of Michigan's Energy Efficiency and Conservation Blog Grant (EECBG).

With this funding the township completed an audit of the township administration building to identify potential energy saving upgrades and retrofits. Additionally, the funding allowed the township to hire a temporary Energy Coordinator to take the lead on a number of other green related projects:

  • Green Pittsfield logo contest
  • Hand-crank display that shows the difference in energy needed to power a traditional incandescent light vs. an energy efficient CFL light
  • Display to show the different types of CFL lights and tones available
  • Display to show the different types of insulation available
  • Permanent fixture installed in the lobby of the township administration building to provide an area to display energy efficiency and other educational and promotional materials
  • Energy efficient blinds installed in the township administration building to reduce heating and cooling costs
  • Resident eco-kits: A tote displaying the new Pittsfield Green logo packed with energy and conservation supplies for the home
