When we host or hear about a great event that will affect our northern Michigan environment, we'll post it here!
In the past 5 years, NMEAC has hosted several forums to highlight those in our area who have been involved in promoting solar in some way. We have had a variety of individuals, businesses, installers and promoters tell their stories.Yes, it does work in northern Michigan!
Skip Pruss will be there to update on the latest with solar energy. Joe DeFors, Tim Young, Glenn LaCross, Leelanau Fruit and David Milarch, Archangel Ancient Tree Archive (yes, there is a connection with solar!) will be among a variety of other speakers.
As time allows, there will be a Q&A which often sparks great discussions.
Free to the public. Please join us!
