Survey: U.P. Light Produce Processing Facility Assessment

Survey Open: November 1–30

The Upper Peninsula Light Processing Facility Assessment is a cooperative study involving several stakeholders to identify opportunities to advance economic growth in the Upper Peninsula with the expansion of light processing capacity for fruits and vegetables. Input from Upper Peninsula fruit and vegetable growers is critically important. We need to know the top crops produced in the U.P., the volume of specific crops from typical farms and throughout the entire region, any current processing those crops undergo before sale, the types of markets that farmers are using for product sales, and what opportunities and assets would encourage U.P. farmers to expand production.

Michigan utility customers may be eligible for a free furnace or boiler tune-up through a statewide energy efficiency program. Tune-ups ensure heating systems are running cleanly and efficiently, saving residents money and eliminating health and safety risks.

Blue Terra Energy is conducting the free tune-ups, normally priced at $100, for natural gas utility customers in the western Upper Peninsula. Residents must be Semco Energy Gas Company customers to qualify. Customers can call (906) 487-5342 to schedule.

The free furnace and boiler tune-ups are funded by revenue collected from a small surcharge Michigan utility customers currently pay on their monthly bills. In addition to a free tune-up, customers may also be eligible to receive a new programmable thermostat and/or new carbon monoxide detector, free of charge.
