Distributed Energy in Michigan

Michigan has big goals around clean energy - Governor Whitmer's Healthy Climate Plan calls for thousands of new clean energy jobs, economic development, and rapid deployment of renewable resources. Distributed solar presents a new opportunity to diversity the state's energy portfolio, lower energy bills, and provide a new revenue stream for farmers and other landowners across Michigan. 

Specifically, community solar - generally defined as solar projects 5MW and below -  has broad support in Lansing, and is well-positioned to take advantage of federal funding through the IRA. Apex and it's coalition partners are working to legislatively enable this program, which would allow third-party developers to interconnect to Consumers and DTE's system and offer bill savings and improved reliability to Michiganders. 

Apex Clean Energy is seeking landowners interested in leasing their land for community solar projects and for larger transmission-connected solar projects.


Are you a landowner in Michigan?

You may be able to sign up for solar energy on your land.

  1. Let us know you're interested here.
  2. If your parcel is 40 acres or more, we'll investigate your property to ensure it is a suitable site for distributed solar. If your parcel is less than 40 acres, it might be too small to be eligible, but we're happy to hold onto your information in case there are new opportunities in the future.
  3. If your land is eligible, we will prepare a lease agreement for you to review.
  4. Once you've signed, we do the rest—from developing the site, to getting permits, to building the project, to selling the power that's produced.

The best part? You get paid the whole time.
