I’m a founding member of Benzie Solar Initiative (BSI), a nonprofit group working in Benzie County to help facilitate solar energy installations. I will beef out this post more later, but for now, I want you to see the rough draft of this super cool map that I started making…
Click the interactive map above to learn more about how much potential solar power is installed in each township of Benzie County.
The intensity map shows total installed generating capacity from solar in each township of Benzie County. As of right now, there are only 11 participants on the map. If you have solar and want to add how much potential power is on your roof, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 231-649-3988. I need to know a) how many panels you have b) how many watts per panel c) when you installed your panels d) your address. (Not to worry; individual information won’t be shared publicly.)
Hoping this might help to create a buzz for solar in our community, and/or maybe help us to get some grant money!
Let me know what you think of the map!
