Clean Energy


By the year 2025, the Traverse City area will achieve at least a 25% reduction in energy demand and an increase in renewable energy production to 25% of the total. We intend to put the region on the map with one of the best clean energy programs in Michigan and a national leader among rural regions. This program will have a true sense of ownership from the widest possible set of community leaders, government officials, business people, and citizens.
