 Michigan's Largest Utility Breaks Ground on State's Largest Community Solar Project

Michigan’s largest utility, Consumers Energy, has broken ground on a community solar project at Grand Valley State University.

The 3-MW project is part of the larger Solar Gardens program and will occupy 17 acres of the campus.  The facility will utilize high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells manufactured by Atlanta’s Suniva, Inc.
 
“This project represents a cornerstone for our new Solar Gardens program, providing an avenue for customers to participate in the development of renewable energy that helps us continue to power homes and businesses across our state,” said Dan Malone, Consumers Energy’s senior vice president of energy resources. “We are very pleased to collaborate with Suniva, and support their continued growth in the U.S., including here at home in Michigan.”
