East Lansing Community Solar Park, located in Burcham Park, is coming online by the end of 2018. It has 1,000 345-watt panels for a total of 345 kW. Participants lease a panel for $399 for 25 years. The Lansing Board of Water & Light, City of East Lansing, Michigan Energy Options, Pivot Energy and Patriot Solar Group are the team responsible for creating the solar park, which sits atop a capped landfill. Enhancing the solar park will be native pollinating plants and meadow grasses and a sculpture by Jim Cunnigham called ā€œEnergy for Life.ā€ The solar park will include educational signage and offer tours for school and community groups. With its solar financing partner, Pivot Energy, Michigan Energy Options created an LLC, Community Energy Options, which owns and will operate the array.
