If you are installing a renewable installation to net-meter your electricity with MPE, YOU MUST FIRST COMPLETE OUR INTERCONNECTION AGREEMENT. Call us at (970) 887-3378 Ext. 4 to request an agreement form.
After completing and submitting the agreement, MPE will physically inspect your system to verify the nameplate rating, inverters, location, etc. Upon approval, your net-metering account will be activated.
For more information about MPE's net-metering tariff, READ TARIFF SECTION 330 (link below).
MPE invests in a number of local renewable projects. Our first project was a small solar array at Middle Park High School in Granby. Since then, we have expanded our local renewable purchases to include hydro and commercial-scale solar projects.
The power that you receive from MPE is getting greener and greener. By 2024, it will be 50 percent renewable (up from 33 percent renewable in 2020). Westminster, Colo.-based Tri-State G&T, MPE's wholesale power supplier, is making big investments today to green up our power mix.
