Michigan’s diverse energy future is set in motion. Utility companies have bold plans to expand solar options and other forms of renewable energy over the next two decades and beyond. The shift in the utility sector from centralized power generation to a higher number of accessory and principal use solar energy systems (SES) means nearly every jurisdiction in Michigan will be approached about a solar installation within the next five years. However, relatively few of Michigan's 1,850 local government jurisdictions are prepared with policy or regulation. The purpose of this training is to help Michigan communities meet the challenge of becoming solar-ready by addressing SES within their planning policies and zoning regulations.

This training is part of a series of events planned this spring and summer on planning and zoning for renewable energy. Participants in this solar training will be eligible to also participate in bus tours (June) and more in-depth online workshops (July/August) organized by the Michigan Association of Planning and University of Michigan, in collaboration with MSU Extension.
