U-M student team works with Northport Energy on Leelanau Township’s renewable energy plan

The Village of Northport will develop and implement a Renewable Energy Community Plan so the village and township can become a 100 percent clean energy community.

U-M’s School of Natural Resources and Environment Master’s Project Team has partnered with the Northport Energy Action Taskforce and local leaders to create the plan, educate the public and garner additional community support to accelerate the community’s already substantial progress in becoming a resilient, largely energy self-sufficient and efficient community.

The intent is to design and implement a model, which other small Michigan communities can successfully emulate.
