GLREA – Great Lakes Energy News, July 2016

Jim Carter, GLREA Board President, passed away unexpectedly on June 21 at the age of 76.  Jim was elected to the Board in 2013 and was elected President in January.  Jim was a Michigan attorney and real estate professional who handled contracts, corporate and LLC matters and specialized in renewable energy.  He started working with Homeland Solar in 2008 assisting them with financing, regulatory and tax matters.  Jim earned his JD and an MBA from the University of Minnesota and resided in Grand Rapids. 
Jim was a thoughtful man of exceptional integrity and kindness who lived an active and engaged life, enjoying and making the most of each day.  GLREA is thankful for all his contributions in promoting renewable energy and we are deeply saddened by his loss.  The picture above shows President Jim and Jimmy Carter and their partners. More
