LANSING, MI. (WILX) -- Wednesday morning legislators celebrated Delta Solar's first year of operation with a tour of the facility and a ride on the solar bus to have legislators understand the benefits of adopting clean energy policy.
Delta Solar serves communications, IT, industrial automation, lighting, automotive electric, and many other industries to provide energy-efficient products.
Delta Solar provides power to the Lansing Board of Water and Light.
The tour sheds light on solar energy and how it can benefit the average consumer.
Myles Burnsed, EDF Renewables, said "I think the most important takeaways are that solars here. It's competitive, it's easy, it's quick, it's clean. It's competitive with any other energy source and is easier to deploy than almost anything we can currently deploy in the state of Michigan."
Delta Solar in Lansing is the home of over 86 thousand solar panels that can power more than 4,200 homes.
The robust technology allows the panels to follow the sun as it moves throughout the day for the utmost efficiency.
Burnsed said Delta Solar is hoping to have 5 thousand megawatts of power by 2030.
Currently, it is operating off of 24-megawatts.
