Our Power Michigan
From Detroit to Grand Rapids to Sault Ste Marie, we’re organizing for energy democracy. We are building a future where our homes are insulated and our neighborhoods are powered by 100% community-owned, pollution-free energy — where we don’t have to worry about long power outages or seniors living in cold homes, so we spend more time tending gardens, building businesses, and caring for our communities.
