The M&M Area Community Foundation is one of only four organizations in Michigan selected to receive funding through the C.S. Mott Foundation to support a clean energy initiative in Marinette and Menominee Counties. The Community Foundation recently created an ad hoc Energy Team to implement and manage energy education and conservation efforts in the area. The Team will work to assist communities to more effectively produce and use clean energy sources, as well as encourage business and residential participation. Team members are currently in contact with local school districts to assess their energy use and develop strategies to reduce their energy costs. The Energy Team’s entire action plan and energy initiative page can be found online at
