Clean Energy in Michigan Series | Coldwater Solar Field Park (No. 6)

April 2020

This case study describes a 1.3 MW solar energy installation located in Coldwater, Michigan, on the site of a demolished foundry. A prime example of brownfield redevelopment for renewable energy, it is a 7-acre project that deploys nearly 5,000 solar panels—generating enough electricity to power roughly 150 homes. The project became operational in February 2018. The case study is one of four produced by a 2019 Dow Fellows team.
