MBLP COMMUNITY SOLAR GARDEN

This summer, MBLP will be building our Community Solar Garden just west of our administrative building on Wright Street, which will have 480 315-watt solar panels.  Customers of the MBLP may participate in purchasing as few or as many panels as they desire (up to 40 panels), as long as they are not producing more energy than they are consuming at their residence or business over the course of one year. Each participant will receive a proportional percentage of utility bill credit that is equal to the amount of energy their panels produce.

PRESENTATION ON VALUE OF SOLAR

The Marquette Board of Light and Power held a community forum on Wednesday June 29, 2016 in the Great Lakes Michigan Room at Northern Michigan University. The meeting was held to discuss the Rate Study for the Marquette Community Solar Garden and Net Metering Rates for residential and commercial rooftop solar projects. Chris Lund from Utility Financial Solutions presented the Solar Renewable Valuation Study, analysis and recommendations, which were given to the Board of Directors. The meeting was held to inform the public about the Renewable Rate Structures and give the public an opportunity to comment and ask questions.
