In the midst of Michigan’s stormy economy, a glimmer of hope is peeking through the dark clouds.

A new state industry is emerging, one powered by the sun rather than an internal-combustion engine.

This is a project that took me a couple months to film and edit. Most of the interviews were conducted within a couple weeks, with additional footage recorded as I had time between my daily duties.

I finished up the project last week, with editing taking about 4 days. I had a lot of fun working on this project, and am looking forward to starting the next one.
