Just as smartphones have changed the way we look at the world, smart technology is changing the way we live within it.
More and more buildings, new and existing, are being fitted with smart technology that controls temperature, humidity, lighting, security and other energy-related systems in an environmentally sound and economically efficient way.
If you would like to get in on the ground floor of this exciting field, I strongly encourage you to check out Macomb’s Building Performance and Energy Management (BPEM) program. It will provide the foundation to launch you into this growing field! I’m proud that this program is one of few like it in southeastern Michigan!
