The historic Whitney Restaurant in Detroit is getting a green makeover as it becomes the first energy-efficiency project in Wayne County to receive financing through an innovative program.

In Macomb County, the Garfield Metro medical office building in Clinton Township, owned by the Peleman family, will soon begin that county's first energy-efficiency project financed by PACE, the Property Assessed Clean Energy program.
