Welcome to the Detroit Solar Tour!
Here you will find information about many of the sites in Detroit using solar or other sources of renewable energy to power their homes or buildings.
Detroit is home to more solar energy installations than you might think, in fact as of December 2017 we have tallied up just over 3.2 Megawatts of solar !! The DETSolarTour page is dedicated to spreading awareness and educating people on the clean and renewable energy in Detroit.
We’ll also be updating the information on this site as we learn more about different solar installations in the city. If you know of a solar array or installation that we’ve missed please click the button below and let us know!
