The Economic Development Corporation of the City of Detroit (EDC) is implementing the SmartBuildings Detroit program using a $10 Million US Department of Energy grant to encourage the installation of energy efficiency improvements for commercial, institutional and public buildings in downtown Detroit to optimize the performance of city real estate. The Program leverages other incentives and energy optimization programs available to commercial property owners. The SmartBuildings Detroit program is part of the statewide BetterBuildings for Michigan program.
The Program will help demonstrate how energy efficiency improvements can help make a wide range of older commercial properties economically viable. The Program Area is generally bounded by the Detroit River on the south, the Lodge Freeway (M-10)on the west, Seward on the north and the Walter Chrysler Freeway (I-75) including the Eastern Market area on the east. Please see map for specific program area.
