General Motors receives $2.8 million for energy efficiency upgrades
General Motors received funding March 11 from a Michigan utility for energy-saving updates to be made at the company's Flint facilities.
Consumers Energy presented GM with a payment worth over $2.8 million that will be used to implement these efficiency upgrades.
GM has received $13.3 million in payments from Consumer Energy for energy efficiency upgrades at its Michigan plants.
The automaker has previously completed 21 energy-saving projects in the last year at its Flint location, including a new energy efficient body shop and building-wide lighting upgrades.
This follows General Motors earlier this year becoming one of the first two participants in a new program that matches its Flint operations 100% with renewable energy. Its Ohio operations also receive renewable energy from a wind farm opened last year by Consumers Energy's parent company, CMS Energy.
