Those driving down the Lodge Freeway in recent weeks might have noticed a few changes to the roof of 1-800-LAW-FIRM.

Thanks to the privately funded Property Assessed Clean Energy project, or PACE, 1-800-LAW-FIRM, located at 26700 Lahser Road, recently debuted new wind turbines, carport and rooftop solar panels, high-efficiency lighting, and electric vehicle charging stations.

In 2012, the Southfield City Council voted to become the first city government to join Lean and Green Michigan, a public-private partnership facilitating economic development, the creation of good jobs and environment improvement.

Southfield’s membership allowed for the adoption of the citywide PACE program, which enables property owners to take on voluntary special assessments in order to finance improvements or construction projects that reduce energy and water use or utilize renewable energy sources, such as geothermal, solar and wind power. read more
