In 2019, Granby-based electric cooperative Mountain Parks Electric rebated more than $38,000 to 19 consumer-members who installed local solar projects. The rebates were funded by voluntary contributions to MPE’s Green Power Program.
“Our local power supply keeps getting greener,” said MPE General Manager Mark Johnston. “Part of it is the generation we purchase from local solar and wind projects, which we rebate through our Green Power Program.”
More than 1,200 MPE consumer-members support the innovative Green Power program. MPE earmarks monthly contributions (as little as $1 a month) for local residential and small commercial renewable energy rebates. Since 2011, MPE has rebated more than $200,000 toward local renewable installations.
