Lunch & Learn: DTE reps to talk about solar installation

Students and faculty will have the opportunity to have lunch with DTE Energy representatives on Thursday Oct. 28.

As part of the Lunch & Learn Series, students and faculty are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch from 12-1 p.m. in the A building, room 173ab, while DTE Energy representatives will provide information on the construction of the solar panel on campus.

Detroit Edison and MCCC announced the signing of a 20-year agreement in July. The agreement will provide the utility’s customers with renewable energy generated from the sun.

The installation is part of Detroit Edison’s Solar Currents program, which calls for photovoltaic systems to be installed on customer property of rooftops over the next five years to generate 15 megawatts of electricity throughout Southeast Michigan.

MCCC is the first educational institution to participate in the program, and the Solar Currents installation at MCCC will be the program’s largest one on a college campus.

Complimentary cookies and coffee will be provided by DTE Energy.
