Sound interesting? Want to find out about it?

Come to the Transition Ferndale meeting at the Ferndale Public Library, 7:00 pm Wednesday, September 18, 2013. The address is 222 East Nine Mile Road in Ferndale, MI. The meeting is free and open to everyone. You need not live in Ferndale to attend. Light refreshments will be available.

Our speaker will be Joel Howrani Heeres, the Sustainable Communities Coordinator for the WARM Training Center. He will be speaking about the possibilities for individual (home) business and community solar systems.

(See for more information.)

MI Solar Works is a state-wide initiative to solarize 6,000 Michigan homes and businesses by the end of 2014 as part of the Department of Energy’s “Race to the Rooftops” national challenge. Srinergy and WARM Training Center are partnering together to bring affordable solar to Michigan. Zero down financing is available based on credit approval. Homeowners and businesses can also take advantage of a 30% federal tax credit on the total cost of the solar system. Solar systems for MI Solar Works are designed, engineered and assembled in Michigan.

Transition Ferndale (and the Transition movement generally) supports resilient, sustainable communities that do not count on on cheap fossil fuel energy or economic growth. We believe there are many organized efforts that contribute to this goal. Our role – we hope – is to make the people participating in these projects aware that they are all helping to build communities that can survive the repeated failures of business-as-usual. For future monthly meetings at the library, we will be inviting a variety of community groups to present their activities.
