OSCEOLA COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) — Osceola County will soon be hosting its second forum on large-scale solar energy developments.

The county held its first meeting in Evart last month with Dr. Sarah Mills from the University of Michigan.

At that meeting, discussions focused on benefits and potential issues that could come with large solar energy developments.

The Osceola County Planning Commission is in the process of updating its master plan and partnered with Michigan State University Extension to conduct research around renewable energy.

This second meeting will focus on community surveys and address any concerns.

“It’s important to Osceola County, right, to their planning commission that they wanted to partner and do this work. It’s important, as a state and nation, that we learn how to have civic dialogue around renewable energy. And the ability to do that years ahead of when you might get a development is really important and really helpful,” said MSU Extension educator Mary Reilly.

The meeting will be held on Thursday at 7 p.m. the Osceola County Fairgrounds meeting room.

People are encouraged to register for the event.
