Informational meetings on rural solar farms will be held into March, with the first tomorrow at 7 PM at the Manchester Township Hall.

The informational series titled: “Rural Solar: The Good, the Bad and the Trade-Offs” will be open to Washtenaw County residents in the coming weeks. It’s an educational collaboration between the University of Michigan’s Graham Sustainability Institute and the Washtenaw County Conservation District.

The sessions intend to demystify the environmental and financial impacts of solar farming and evaluate the possible benefits and disadvantages of the investment for farmland owners.

Future meetings will be held at the Freedom Township Hall in Manchester on March 18th at 7 PM and at the Bridgewater Township Hall in Manchester on March 21st at 6:30 PM.
