Building on the momentum of our work in the Great Lakes Bay Region, Clean Energy Coalition is continuing its work to remove barriers that prevent widespread adoption of renewable energy in Michigan.
Through the Michigan Renewable Energy Tools project, Clean Energy Coalition is examining statewide permitting and zoning practices and developing a robust package of municipal tools, including renewable energy guidebooks and fact sheets that address solar installations, urban wind turbines, urban bioenergy, and electric vehicle charging stations.
To initially test the tools, Clean Energy Coalition will pilot the materials in the Great Lakes Bay Region, working with local officials and municipal staff in the City of Midland, the City of Saginaw, Thomas Township, and Williams Charter Township. Towards the end of the year, Clean Energy Coalition and project partners will launch a multi-year outreach campaign to raise awareness among all Michigan municipalities about the availability of these resources and to encourage adoption.
This project was funded by a grant from Michigan Energy Office. Clean Energy Coalition is managing the project with key support from the following partners:
