MID-MICHIGAN (WNEM) -

A new solar energy campaign being rolled out in the Great Lakes Region.             

First Solarize Michigan is designed to combine public and private sectors to promote the benefits of solar energy.

The group behind the campaign is also looking to raise awareness of the opportunities these solar panels provide and make installation a little easier.

“With the price of solar declining and information available and great local contractors that we can partner with we want to provide information to people and show them how easy it is and affordable it is to put solar on their homes,” said Dan Scripps, Institute of Energy Innovation.

Mid-Michigan has a high amount of solar manufacturers but is looking to explore more areas of distribution and instillation.
