Solar installation at University of Michigan irritates neighbors


From Hundreds of solar panels installed on University of Michigan property in northeast Ann Arbor have upset residents who say the array is an eyesore and are frustrated by the lack of communication between the college and nearby residents. The panels span 2.4 acres of North Campus Research Complex land acquired by the university in 2009. They are part of a $14 million initiative to enhance sustainability on the campus. The installation has 1,800 panels and will generate enough energy to power about 100 homes.
