Region Aims To Be First Solar-Ready Michigan Community


Clean Energy Coalition of Ann Arbor has been working with Williams Charter Township, the City of Midland, the City of Saginaw, and Thomas Township to streamline local permitting, planning and zoning processes for solar installations. This is part of an effort to make the Great Lakes Bay Region one of the first “solar-ready” communities in Michigan. Meetings in April and May reviewed the best national practices for solar permitting and discussed adopting a region-wide approach. This effort is part of the Renewable Energy Tools Program, a statewide project funded by the Michigan Energy Office. Clean Energy Coalition is dedicated to promoting clean energy technologies to create healthier, energy-independent communities.
