Traverse City took a leap toward its ambitious goal of powering 100 percent of city operations with clean energy with the opening of the M-72 Solar Project on Thursday, Oct. 26.
Traverse City is quickly transitioning from a fossil fuel-dependent city in a fossil fuel-dependent state and becoming a statewide leader on renewables and energy efficiency, as it supports jobs in the new energy economy.
Our nation, our economy and our world are transitioning toward renewable energy. The momentum appears unstoppable, despite the inertia in our federal government. Here in Michigan, clean energy advocate Skip Pruss has been a leading prophet both predicting and instigating this movement.
Michiganders will march on the nation’s capital and rally in Traverse City and other cities around the state on April 29 to call on elected leaders to take bold action now to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
