ANN ARBOR - The city is inviting residents to three free sessions to learn more about the benefits of installing solar panels and how to make their homes more energy efficient.

The cost of solar could increase soon, and these "Power Hours" aim to help residents learn how to bring down energy bill costs, learn what options there are for solar energy and make their homes more environmentally friendly.

Here's where the events will take place:

Wednesday, March 20: 6 p.m.
The Ann Arbor Senior Center, 1320 Baldwin Ave.

Thursday, April 11: 6 p.m.
Slauson Middle School, 1019 W. Washington St.

Representatives from the following organizations will be presenting at the events:

  • Michigan Saves: Will discuss its energy efficiency, contractor network and solar financing options.
  • DTE Energy: Will discuss its rebate programs and home energy consultations.
  • Ann Arbor Energy Commission members: Will share information on how to go solar.

Energy efficiency contractors and solar installers will also be on hand to speak with attendees, who can help connect residents to resources to determine whether their properties are solar candidates.

For parents attending with young children, a kids area will be provided.
