Solar: Lansing, MI

Compare Electricity has taken a number of different factors for the Lansing region and developed a solar score of 24. This score is to help residents and businesses in Lansing determine if a solar energy installation is a viable and cost-effective solution. Lansing is located in the center of the lower peninsula of Michigan and received 4.0 kWh of direct sunlight per square foot per day. This is slightly less sunlight than the national average but still viable for a solar installation. Only an estimated 61% of rooftops are viable for a solar installation. This is due to a smaller average size rooftop than the rest of the state. Overall, the region is still viable for a solar installation but business and residents should fill out a solar quote to assess their own situation.
