Saugatuck Train Station

The Eastbound terminal at the Saugatuck train station was witness to thousands of commuters return home each day yet barely noticed or used. As a community interested in sustainable strategies a committee was formed and a plan devised to literally energize the station. Using the solar generation of electricity as our leverage we were able to secure a grant to renovate the station provide 28.8 Kw of photovoltaic cells and install charging stations for commuters demonstrating and encouraging the use of electric vehicles.
