Session to Provide Information on Solar Energy Systems

On June 6 we will conduct an information session in Traverse City for residential electric customers interested in learning about customer-installed solar energy systems. This free session will be held at the Aero Park campus of Northwestern Michigan College from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and is open to the public.

Speakers during the session will provide information on how customers can install their own solar energy systems as part of Consumers Energy’s Experimental Advanced Renewable Program (EARP).  Reservations for this session and information about the program are available at www.consumersenergy.com/EARP.

Currently our program has contracts in place to purchase renewable energy from 138 customer-owned solar generators as part of our renewable energy plan. During a May 10 selection event, 18 residential customer solar projects from 13 Lower Peninsula counties received authorization to proceed as part of Consumers Energy’s Experimental Advanced Renewable Program.
