Michigan Clean Cities Stakeholder Forum
September 22, 2016


In June 2016 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) settled a lawsuit against VW over “defeat devices” used in diesel vehicles during emissions tests. The settlement requires Volkswagen (VW) to create a $2.7 Billion Environmental Mitigation Trust Fund. Michigan stands to receive more than $60 Million to fund diesel engine repowers and / or replacements, regardless of past VW ownership.

Please join Michigan’s Clean Cities Coalitions to learn how this funding could impact fleets throughout Michigan and share your valuable thoughts on how this funding might be best utilized.

Request for Proposals: a2energy Residential & Commercial Solar Group Purchase Program
June 24, 2016

Clean Energy Coalition, as part of its partnership with the City of Ann Arbor’s a2energy program, is seeking qualified organizations to submit proposals for the design of a private-sector-funded bulk buy or aggregation campaign for installation of new residential and commercial solar PV systems at a per-watt price lower than a typical installation.

The goal of the a2energy Residential & Commercial Solar Group Purchase Program is to expand solar education and accelerate the installation of solar photovoltaics (PV) on private property in Ann Arbor through a group purchase and competitive bidding process.

This request for proposal is to identify a Solar Group Purchase Partner to provide a comprehensive campaign including outreach & marketing, installation, and post-installation support of small solar PV energy systems for residents and businesses within the City of Ann Arbor.

All details associated with this program are outlined in the linked document. All questions regarding the contents of this RFP should be submitted via email to Bonnie Bona at bonnie@cec-mi.org, no later than July 8, 2016. We look forward to receiving your response no later than July 25, 2016, at 12:00pm EDT.
