Green Power Program History & Stats
Established in 1999, MPE's Green Power Program (GPP) provides rebates for local renewable energy installations. These funds are made available by voluntary contributions from more than 1,500 MPE consumer-members (not funded through MPE's rate base). Want to make a difference locally? You can by helping support MPE's GPP. Program details are provided below.
2021 Program Stats
In 2021, the Green Power Program rebated $35,000 to renewable energy systems (RES) installed within MPE's service area. Now in its 23rd year, the GPP's local footprint continues to grow. Over the past 11 years, the GPP has awarded $280K to 197 local renewable installations.
How the Program Began
The GPP was established in 1999. Prior to January 1, 2011, all funds were used to purchase renewable energy credits outside of MPE’s service territory. Now these funds are rebated to local renewable energy installations. MPE’s “keeping it local” Green Power Program vision has attracted more than 1,500 monthly contributors.
Although some contribute $100 a month, anyone can support the program by contributing as little as $1 a month – a charge added to your monthly MPE bill. One-time and annual contributions are also accepted. To donate, simply select the contribution form button at the top of this page.
Rebate Award Levels
Residential & Business/Organization/Commercial: $1,000 (2 kW or larger system)
