The Lansing Board of Water and Light will create the first community solar parks in their service territory.
Dawn Parker – “Do you know the odds of a sunny day this time of year?” Michigan Energy Options Executive Director John Kinch joked Tuesday afternoon. The abundant sunshine over Burcham Park might have been read as a good omen. Kinch and other local officials were there to announce the first of two solar parks in the Lansing Board of Water and Light’s service area.
Officials from the Lansing Board of Water & Light (BWL), City of East Lansing and City of Lansing announced plans today to build the first community solar parks in BWL’s service territory. The announcement was held at East Lansing’s Burcham Park, a retired landfill site and the proposed location of the first of the two community solar developments.
