Consumers Energy Company has announced 22 new solar energy projects across Michigan's Lower Peninsula. The projects will provide 546 kilowatts of electric capacity, and they range in size from 21 to 150 kilowatts. Seventeen residential customer projects in 13 counties - Bay, Barry, Clinton, Eaton, Gladwin, Hillsdale, Ingham, Jackson, Kent, Monroe, Newaygo, Ottawa and Washtenaw - also were selected. The projects will provide about 171 kilowatts of electric capacity, and they range in size from 2.5 to 20 kilowatts.

The program provides for the long-term purchase of renewable energy generated by solar energy systems owned by electric customers.

Consumers Energy, a natural gas and electric utility, and the Utility Workers Union of America, or UWUA, have opened a new training center in Potterville, Michigan. The 10,000-square-foot training center in Potterville, southwest of Lansing, features seven classrooms and related labs. There, employees will build and sharpen their skills in meter reading, gas service appliance repair and other natural gas- and electric-related service fields. The center grew from an agreement last year between Consumers Energy and the Utility Workers Union. The UWUA Power for America Training Trust Fund leased an existing Potterville office building, and it is also moving its home office from Southfield to the location. The building was remodeled entirely by Michigan labor. The union will provide training to as many as 2,500 Consumers Energy employees it represents.
