COMPETITOR CATEGORIES

Competitors in the Michigan Battle of the Buildings are categorized by building type and compete against alike buildings.

One building winner is limited per building portfolio. This enables fair and wide recognition of the energy reduction accomplishments state wide. 

If 50% or more of your building fits one of the below categories then that is your building type.
If the building is mixed (ie: 30% education, 35% entertainment, 35% health) then it should be categorized as "Other."
