Plugged In SPECIAL EDITION – Growing in Sustainability

Over the past decade, the Grand Haven Board of Light and Power, in partnership with local businesses and residents, has consistently exceeded our sustainability goals. We have expanded our renewables portfolio and helped significantly optimize and reduce energy usage – implementing a balanced approach that is both environmentally and fiscally responsible. Great progress has been made and our plans are to continue this journey to ensure a reliable, affordable, and sustainable energy future for our community.
