Sustainable Biz Group To Meet On Community Solar: Join the Southeast Michigan Sustainable Business Forum at 6 p.m. July 11 for a Happy Hour and talk on “Community Solar” by Dave Konkle of the Great Lakes Renewable Energy Association. The event is also sponsored by the Michigan League of Conservation Voters and the Ecology Center. The event is free with cash bar, but registration is limited, so sign up early. Community Solar is a new concept developing across the country that allows groups of people to invest in a solar energy system built in their community and then get money back either through a reduction on their energy bills or a periodic payment for the value of the energy produced by their share of the solar collectors. The GLREA has helped lead an effort to bring Community Solar to Michigan. Now, working on a Michigan Energy Office funded Feasibility Analysis of Community Solar in Michigan, GLREA is gathering information and data on Community Solar efforts in Michigan and across the nation. Our experts will discuss what is happening now and what the future might bring for Community Solar in Michigan. The venue is the Maiz Mexican Cantina, 4855 Washtenaw Ave., Ann Arbor.
