Consumers Energy has awarded General Motors $2.8 million for energy-saving upgrades at the company’s Flint plants.
The automaker has finished 21 projects in 2018 at its Flint Assembly operation, consisting of a new energy-efficient body shop and building-wide lighting upgrades.
Consumers Energy senior vice president Brian Rich states the automaker “has made a commitment to sustainability.”
GM this year was among the first participants in a new program that matches its Flint operations 100 percent with renewable energy. Consumers Energy’s parent company, CMS Energy, started a wind farm in 2018 that provides renewable energy to GM operations in Ohio.
