Flint proposes solar farm to power alternative fuel facility

Flint’s Mass Transportation Authority (MI) announced plans to build a solar farm to power a new hydrogen, propane, and electric fueling station. “The entire site is going to be one-of-a-kind,” said general manager Ed Benning. “It’s really about sustainability — being able to sustain public transportation over the long haul.” Tuesday’s ground-breaking marked the first phase for the facility, which is expected to cost $3.5 million. Phase 2 calls for building public hydrogen, compressed natural gas, propane and plug-in connections for electric vehicles, costing at least $1 million more. The solar farm is also projected to cost at least $1 million. Link to full story in Flint Journal.
