Bay Mills Indian Community

Brimley, Michigan

The Bay Mills Indian Community is requesting funding for a solar and battery backup project for two of the Tribe’s critical service facilities on Reservation- the Justice Center which consists of Bay Mills Police Department and Tribal Court; and the Armella B. Parker Senior Center.

We plan to implement just under 20 kW at each location on the south-facing roof surfaces, and integrate that amount of solar pv with high quality battery storage systems at each location. This project will provide critical power during utility outages and shave the more expensive peak demand power needs, along with nearly $10,000 of direct utility savings per year.
