Laketown Community Solar Garden
The Laketown Community Solar Garden was commissioned in December, 2015 and allows all individuals and small businesses to participate in solar, regardless of their access to a suitable roof. Participants simply purchase the production rights of centrally located solar panels and receive bill credits on their electric bill each month for the next 15 years.

The Laketown Community Solar Garden is hosted on the property of the Felt Estate in Laketown Township, Michigan. The solar array is 100 kW in size, which is large enough to provide for all of Felt Mansion’s electricity needs during the year. This project follows in the vision of Felt Mansion to promote environmental sustainability and renewable energy, both causes championed by the mansion’s builder Dorr Felt.
