Michigan Energy Options (MEO) will be a key player in two upcoming town hall meetings in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, centered on the advantages of solar energy. The events aim to inform the public about solar energy options, ways to make them more accessible, and how they can aid in reducing energy costs. Hosted by the Mid-Michigan Business and Community Sustainability Partnership (MMBCSP), a group made up of local government, business, and community members, these meetings will take place on May 10th from 7 to 9 pm and May 11th from 11 am to 1 pm at Mt. Pleasant City Hall.
These town halls will feature members of the Mt. Pleasant Citizens Climate Lobby, Mt. Pleasant Mayor Amy Perschbacher, and Union Township Supervisor Bryan Mielke, among other founding members of the MMBCSP. The partnership, which includes representatives from Central Michigan University, Isabella County, Mid-Michigan College, as well as small business owners and community members, emphasizes economic development through sustainable practices and affordable energy-efficient solutions. MEO’s expertise in solar energy and community development will provide valuable insights and resources for individuals and businesses looking to transition to clean energy sources.
The upcoming solar energy town halls are only the beginning, with future events set to focus on electric vehicles and EV chargers, as well as other relevant topics of interest.
