Harvest Energy Solutions Places Solar Array in Lenawee County, Michigan
According to company officials, the installations are owned by Stateline Farms, Gerken Paving, and Harvest Solar Lenawee. Each of these systems is capable of 1.0 MW of AC output. The power generated by these systems will be sold to Cassopolis, Michigan - based energy provider Midwest Energy & Communications (MEC) thanks to a program offered by Wolverine Power Co-op.
Harvest partnered with MEC when Wolverine Power offered to purchase solar energy under a program through their member-owned cooperatives. Additionally, Wolverine stipulated that the power must be provided locally from an existing member of MEC in order to contribute to the local economy.
This series of solar projects created jobs in both Lenawee and Jackson counties, employed local electricians, construction workers, engineers and other professionals.
Ken Zebarah, Territory Sales Manager at Harvest said, "Historically, taking on three projects of this size at once would be a big deal. But between the cooperation from the townships, MEC and the Harvest team, the installations came together without a hitch and within the agreed upon tight schedule."
According to Zebarah, "Through Wolverine Power and all other utilities in the State, solar programs and policies are constantly changing, so there is always opportunity for a variety of larger projects throughout the State. We are actively pursuing land lease opportunities for larger projects, in addition to our typical scope of work of providing solar energy systems to residences, businesses, and farms."
