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 1,200 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.
2019 Program Stats
In 2019, the Green Power Program (GPP) received $33,384 in member contributions. The program rebated $41,564 to renewable energy systems (RES) installed within MPE's service area. Now in its 21st year, the GPP's local footprint continues to grow. Over the past 9 years, the GPP has awarded $215,981 to more than 100 local RES 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 1,200 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.
