Map It!


The Jonesville Eye Care building in Jonesville, MI is a single-story medical office building housing the optometry practice of Michael A. Biddle, O.D. The building, constructed in 2004, is owned by Dr. Biddle and is self managed. Recognizing the importance of energy-efficient design, the building was constructed with energy efficiency technologies, including T8 lighting, properly sized heating and cooling systems, and above-code insulation. Jonesville Eye Care turned to the proven strategy of EPA's ENERGY STAR program in 2009 for the tools and resources necessary to help maintain superior energy performance.

As a first step, the Jonesville Eye Care energy management team sought to assess the building's baseline energy performance using the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool.  The first building assessment occurred in 2009, and the tool returned a baseline rating of 97, placing the building well above the national average. The strong energy performance rating is attributed to efficient initial design by S. Allen Design, Coldwater, MI, and solid construction practices by Balcom Construction, Jonesville, MI.  

With the strong building results in hand, the Jonesville Eye Care energy management team has developed an ongoing process with staff to continue the effective use of energy at the facility. The building owner strives to spread the word that energy efficiency is good for the bottom line as well as good for the environment. An ongoing energy monitoring plan is in place to assure that this facility continues to operate in a highly efficient manner and earns the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance in the coming years.




"Energy efficiency has always been an important part of our business strategy and we as an organization are constantly looking for opportunities to reduce our costs and energy use. Through monthly monitoring and reporting of our energy data, we plan to ensure that Jonesville Eye Care runs at high efficiency allowing us the opportunity to earn the ENERGY STAR each year."
