Highland Park Takes Power Back

Highland Park Takes Power Back
A grassroots community organization comes together to return streetlights to a Detroit neighborhood.

Soulardarity is a nonprofit organization that puts energy control in the hands of the community.

After a utility company repossessed more than 1,000 streetlights in Highland Park, the Michigan-based group began raising money to install solar-powered streetlights on the town’s dark streets.

Soulardarity envisions a future where energy is cooperatively owned and the wealth it generates is used to make communities stronger together.
