Solar Panels helping low income housing

MARQUETTE — The Superior Watershed Partnership started a new initiative installing solar panels primarily in lower income housing.

They received initial funding from the Michigan Energy Assistance Program.

They are expected to install 6–8 panels this coming fall.

It is estimated that people should save $500–600  annually.

“We will install these panels free to them if they qualify and hopefully they will save all this money on their bills and be able to use that towards much needed things. You don’t always think about letting them have the opportunity to put a solar panel on their home and we really want to flip that paradigm around,” said Emily Leach, Energy Conservation Coordinator.

The Superior Watershed Partnership currently has a waiting list, but they do encourage people to still call if you’re interested.
