Consumers Energy rep talks upcoming residential solar program

Aug 12, 2015

Michigan residents interested in adding solar power to their energy mix can soon do so right on their utility bills.

That’s the goal of a Consumers Energy residential solar pilot program which launches later this year.

As part of that program, the Jackson-based utility will construct a seven-to-14 acre solar array in West Michigan, on land owned by Grand Valley State University. 

Consumers Energy senior information officer Roger Morgenstern tells WGVU’s Hilary Farrell about the pilot program - and how the company looks to leverage the desire of clean energy with the demands of a practical business model.
