TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - A new solar power project in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula is expected to be online in the first week in October.

Traverse City has contracted with Heritage Sustainable Energy to buy the solar array’s output. The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports city commissioners agreed to buy the electricity to advance the city’s goal of powering all government operations with renewable energy by 2020.

Traverse City Light & Power’s Executive Director Tim Arends says upgrades to its power grid are part of the effort to get power from the new solar farm.
