The other day I heard third hand that Ypsilanti was listed as the City with the third most solar installation in the DTE customer region. This got me searching and I found these slides talking about DTE SolarCurrnet Phae 2 program. On slide two it list the top 3 City with the most SolarCurrent phase 1 projects. Ypsi was listed as number 3. If you take our tiny little population into account, I’d say we’re number one on a per capita basis.
Let get more solar installations in Ypsi and move up the list!
Since the defeat of proposal 3, Environment Michigan has decided to build more grass root support for solar power in Michigan. They have decided to start this in Ypsilanti since we already have a great support for solar power.
Here is an invitation to come join them at their Community Action Meeting on February 13th!
We’re are working to get City Council to set an ambitious solar goal for our city, establish programs that will put solar on more homes and businesses, and install solar panels on more public buildings and schools.
Environment Michigan has a plan to demonstrate overwhelming support for solar energy in Ypsilanti– and your involvement will be critical to pulling it off! Come learn more and get involved at a Community Action Meeting on February 13th!
It would be fantastic if you could also bring any friends or family to this community action meeting and spread the word by forwarding this invitation via email or sharing the event on Facebook. City Council won’t be convinced unless they feel this is something the residents of Ypsilanti want.
Today SolarYpsi was on the “Chasing Clean Air” blog radio show today. Blogger Donna Barnett started a new radio show today and had Teresa Gillotti and Dave Strenski on to talk about Ypsilanti and SolarYpsi. You can hear the program here.
