Solar Energy Applications Now Open for Residential Customers

Beginning today residential electric customers served by Consumers Energy can submit applications to participate in our Experimental Advanced Renewable Program (EARP). This program allows electric customers to sell the output of customer-owned solar generating systems to Consumers Energy for a fixed price over a contract length of 15 years. 

Applications for this next phase of the EARP must be submitted by May 3, 2012. About 115 Michigan residents are currently participating in Consumers Energy’s Experimental Advanced Renewable Program.
