This meeting will feature a three-person panel with deep practical experience of solar power in Michigan. The Michigan Chapter of the Sierra Club is partnering with Michigan Solar Solutions, Solar Winds and McNaughton-McKay Electric Company to help Michigan Sierra Club members and supporters make their homes solar-powered! The partnership means these carefully vetted, qualified, residential solar-power installers and providers of the highest quality solar products can help move you into the clean energy column. Read more at https://sierrasemg.wordpress.com/your-own-solar-power/. Mark Ferda works at McNaughton-McKay Electric and brings to the panel expert knowledge of price and availability of solar panels, inverters and all the other components needed for a successful home and small business setup. Mark Hagerty represents Michigan Solar Solutions, which has some years of experience planning and executing solar installations. Mark Clevey is a member of the Ann Arbor energy Commission and the founder of the Ann Arbor Solar Users Network. His particular interest is in how local registration and licensing can either help or unnecessarily hinder solar panel installations. Each panelist will make a 15-20 minute presentation, and then the floor will be open for questions from the audience. Regular Sierra Club SEMG Membership meeting, 1st Thursday, monthly. Open to the public; any interested person can attend. 6:30-7:00 Snacks, socializing 7:00-7:10 Announcements 7:10 Presentation

The Voters Not Politicians ballot committee and grassroots organization Count MI Vote are co-hosting Redistricting Reform Town Halls across Michigan, and we're holding one at the Clinton Macomb Pubic Library! This is an opportunity for voters to learn about gerrymandering and discuss solutions. It will start with a fun and engaging introduction to the facts, then move into a discussion to hear from you and your neighbors. Like any good town hall, your ideas and concerns will be heard, your questions answered, and your input used to design change that reflects the will of Michigan voters. Admission is free, and all Michiganders are welcome (including young ones)! However, space is limited, so please reserve your spot by selecting "Going". For more information about the Voters Not Politicians ballot committee, please go to http://votersnotpoliticians.com/ For more information about Count MI Vote, please go to http://countmivote.org/
