Current Solarize Communities:
Solarize Michigan is a campaign led by the Institute for Energy Innovation, with help from 5 Lakes Energy, and local partners including Saginaw Future, Midland Tomorrow, and Bay Future. The campaign will work to bring down the costs of at-home solar energy by using bulk buying, competitive bidding and community education. There have been solarize campaigns in several states, but this is the first campaign in Michigan.
The costs of solar are rapidly falling, and solarize campaigns work to lower those costs through buying in bulk and competitive bidding. There are upfront costs though. We want to work with you to show what financing options are available for you, from tax credits to low-interest loans.
We will be having educational workshops and events near you. Events are free and open to the public. Come join us and learn more about solar!
