"Wolverine's members committed to far exceed Michigan's Renewable Portfolio Standard and, in the past few years, have become Michigan's renewable energy leaders – we will nearly double the statutory requirement this year," said Joseph Baumann, a Wolverine Vice President. "Much of this excess has been achieved through large-scale wind projects and solar power will now play a key role in further diversifying Wolverine's environmentally friendly power supply mix," concluded Baumann.
Baker encouraged anyone interested in further information on the SpartanSolar - Wolverine project to visit www.spartansolar.com and sign up for updates as they become available.
