Solar power continues to grow in the City of Ypsilanti. SolarYpsi just finished the third installation of solar panels on the Ypsilanti Food Coop’s roof, though the electrician has not yet wired it into the building.
We also got permission from the Historic District to put some solar panels on the Freighthouse. You can see pictures of what the installation will look like on pages 9, 10, 11, and 12 in the HDC information packet.
One thing member’s of the community can do today, is to call a local solar contractor and just get a quote to see what it would cost to make your house 100% or even 50% solar powered. You can find a solar contractor directory here.
As an example, Srinergy has started a new program where they will finance 100% of a solar installation. You can go solar today for zero money down, and lease to own the system over a 10 year period. Here is their flier. Srinergy_MI_Solar_Works_Flyer
