Countryside Manor to qualify for free water heaters from Consumers Energy

Countryside Manor, a low-income housing apartment complex in Bath Township, Mich., has qualified for 30 free water heaters for all units from Consumers Energy. The water heaters are Energy Star, which brands themselves as energy efficient. Consumers Energy began an incentive program back in 2008 because of the passing of the Energy Bill that puts an emphasis on energy conservation. Consumers Energy Public Information Director Terry DeDoes said that it was a comprehensive bill that had goals of reducing pressure on the electric grid. “We have different programs to provide to different residential and industrial customers to save energy,” DeDoes said.
