Consumers Energy develops community solar program with renewable energy sources

Consumers Energy today announced plans to move forward with a new community solar program, called Solar Gardens, that will develop renewable energy sources with help from Michigan residents.

"We are actively taking steps to take care of the environment and are excited to launch Solar Gardens," said Tim Sparks, Consumers Energy's vice president for energy supply operations. "We're developing renewable energy that will continue to help our state stay green for generations to come and provide our customers access to solar energy."

Through Solar Gardens, Consumers Energy could develop up to 10 megawatts of solar energy at locations in the Michigan communities it serves. The first locations could be selected this summer and could be producing electricity next year.
