“Electricity is a national security issue. Our current grid is our Achilles heel, it’s our weakest point. Generating solar energy domestically is the best way to ensure a safe and healthy future for the United States.” – Mark Haggerty, Founder of Michigan Solar Solutions, Wixom, MI
“Solar benefits a triple bottom line: it is generally something that is good for individual people, it can lower costs for homeowners and businesses, and it is environmentally responsible.” – Ian Olmsted, Founder of Peninsula Solar, Marquette, MI
