Given that over half of Michigan’s more than 1,800 municipalities have considered renewable energy in their zoning ordinances, the state has launched a unique database that houses all ordinances in one accessible location. Launched by the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy, the database is the first compilation of all ordinances across the state and the first of its kind in the nation.
The database is an in-depth resource guide for municipalities developing ordinances or for developers looking to site wind, solar, or other alternative energy projects. At-a-glance maps updated in real time aim to help users quickly determine which municipalities are primed for renewable energy development with existing ordinances.
The renewable energy zoning database is a key component of the Energy Future Initiative, which is working to transform knowledge into real-world impact by catalyzing collaborations between students, researchers, practitioners, and stakeholders.
