Energy Programs



Get plugged in!

Through education and financial incentives, MBCP Energy Programs are designed to assist our community with the switch from fossil fuel-powered sources to clean energy alternatives. Based on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions measures, focusing our Energy Programs on the transportation and building sectors will provide the greatest impact on reducing GHG emissions.

Together, by providing businesses and residents with carbon-free electricity, our community has already taken a big step toward continued economic and environmental progress for our region. MBCP Energy Programs possess the potential for all of us to accomplish even more together.

MBCP's Five-Year Energy Programs Road Map

MBCP has built a comprehensive electrification strategic plan which will culminate in a five-year energy programs road map designed to prioritize aggressive emission reductions while driving local economic development and stable, low electricity rates. In addition, as the region’s transportation and building stock switches from fuel to electricity, the program map aims to address community emergency preparedness and resiliency during times of power outages.

Look what we’ve already accomplished.
