Solar For The People



How can low-income communities and communities access the benefits of solar energy? What do we need to know about the new energy legislation in Michigan? What tools are available to finance solar on our own roofs, in our own communities? How can we take action to make more possible? 


In partnership with Re-Volv and Solar Education Week, we are hosting Solar For The People to answer these questions and more. Join us for enriching conversation on solar energy options, resources for taking action, and planning for more serious engagement.
