LANSING – Success in energy efficiency is something worth bragging about in Michigan. Detroit was listed in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s 2012 top 25 cities with the most ENERGY STAR rated buildings. It ranked 19th with 100 ENERGY STAR buildings. The leader, Los Angeles, had 528 buildings with ENERGY STAR ratings. ENERGY STAR buildings use less energy, are less expensive to operate and cause fewer greenhouse gas emissions than at least 75 percent of similar buildings.
