The Executive Committee of the Michigan Schools Energy Cooperative (MISEC) is pleased to announce that we have signed a letter of intent with NorthStar Clean Energy, a CMS Energy company, to design and develop a solar farm that will provide clean, renewable energy to our members currently participating in the Electric Choice program.

Some key facts about the MISEC Choice Solar Farm

  • A long-term, Michigan-based, and MISEC-branded solar energy generating asset.
  • Located on 380 acres in Genesee County, at US-475 and Carpenter Road.
  • A 50-megawatt (MW) single-axis solar asset, providing ~93 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) annually of green power and renewable energy credits exclusively to Michigan Schools.
  • Construction will begin in fall 2023, with commercial operation expected in June 2025.

This solar farm is a major step forward for MISEC and its members, all of whom face several challenges including rising energy costs, the need to reduce environmental impact and creating a more sustainable future for our students. The MISEC Choice Solar Farm will help us address these challenges. We have scheduled a series of webinars to convey project details, answer your questions, and explain next steps to confirm your participation (registration below).
