General Motors and DTE Energy have announced plans to build the largest photovoltaic solar project in southeast Michigan at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant. The 516-kilowatt unit will generate electricity to charge 150 Chevrolet Volt electric cars every day for a year, a total of 54,750 volts. The solar facility will complement other green operations at the plant, which was recently named a Michigan Clean Corporate Citizen for its commitment to the environment. GM derives over one percent of its manufacturing energy from renewable energy.

The International Business Leaders Forum has partnered with Apeejay Jay Surrendra Group to establish the first-of-its-kind, national volunteering awards in India. The Apeejay India Volunteer Awards awards aim to recognize excellence in volunteering in India, and will be given to individuals, corporations, and NGOs working regionally across four zones of India, including Mumbai. Winners will be announced in August.
