Renewable Energy

Renewable energy is created from sources that do not deplete or can be replenished within a human's life time. The most common examples include wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, and hydropower.

About the Program

Our community solar program is an affordable way for you to make a long-term commitment to Michigan’s environment by choosing to use renewable energy as a power source. Instead of putting solar panels on your roof, your panel subscription entitles you to a share of the energy produced by our utility-scale community solar array.

How it Works

A subscription to buy power from a single panel is available for a monthly fee of $10 for 5 years or a one-time fee of $600. You can purchase as many subscriptions as you would like. Your electric co-op continues delivering your energy and you’ll receive solar credits on your utility bill. There is nothing to install, nothing to maintain, and you can cancel at any time.
