The Housing Authority of La Crosse retained Michaels Energy to complete energy audits for its seven high-rise facilities, four low-rise developments, a preschool, and the Housing Authority Administration building.  These energy audits meet the federal Housing and Urban Development requirements for energy audits.

Michaels provided cost and savings estimates for the identified measures.  The intent of these estimates is to provide a magnitude of savings potential and approximate costs to achieve the savings.  The estimates will help the Housing Authority to decide whether to pursue certain projects and to plan for future facility upgrades.
