The City of Farmington Hills, in collaboration with Michigan Energy Options, has opened an online solar survey to gather information about the community’s knowledge of, and interest in, using solar power.
Sustainable Farmington Hills, the city’s sustainability program, is exploring solar opportunities as part of the Georgetown University Energy Prize efforts.
“Many of our community members have expressed an interest in solar power,” said Lydia Macklin-Camel, the city’s Energy Prize Coordinator. “This survey will give community members the chance to help guide the development of the City’s solar program.”
Respondents can go to sustainablefh.com to take the solar survey, which will remain open until January 15, 2017. Survey results will be released to the public after that date.
Michigan Energy Options, a state-wide nonprofit, has helped numerous municipalities achieve energy and environmental goals through research and project-driven results. Their most recent undertaking, Michigan Community Solar, is a collaborative effort to establish a community solar park with the City of East Lansing and the Lansing Board of Water & Light.
“Increasingly, we are finding that communities want to be involved in their future energy choices by exploring local solar development and other options,” said John Kinch, Executive Director of Michigan Energy Options. “We are pleased to be working with the City of Farmington Hills on their vision as part of the Georgetown University Energy Prize.”
