As we continue growing our member network, MIACCA is pleased to welcome our newestassociate member,Michigan Saves—a nonprofit organization dedicated to making energy improvements easy and affordable for all Michigan energy consumers. Unique in its authorizednetwork of energy-efficiency and renewable energy system contractors.
Members gain exclusive rights to offer Michigan Saves financing to their customers with a portfolio that includes programs for residential, commercial, and municipal customers. Joining this network offers contractors a convenient, 24-7 way to stand out from their competitors by allowing them to direct their customers to participating lenders that provide unsecured, low-interest, and longer-term loans online and by phone receiving a decision within minutes.
One of our very own contractor members—Schaafsma Heating and Cooling—is a Michigan Saves authorized contractor that has enjoyed an average sale increase while helping their customers make affordable energy improvements.
In the opinion of Bill Krestakos, MIACCA's president and Schaafsma's vice president, joining the Michigan Saves contractor network has been a smart business decision that's helped Schaafsmaincrease its revenue while adding significant value to its existing services.
"Michigan Saves financing has been very effective and easy to use, allowing us to close more business at a higher price," said Krestakos. "At the same time, we're able to help people who aren't necessarily prepared to buy a new furnace or needed equipment, and that's where Michigan Saves financing makes it possible for customers to afford it."
