Experimental Advanced Renewable Program (EARP)

Consumers Energy will be accepting applications for EARP Solar residential and non-residential customers until May 7, 2014 and for EARP Anaerobic Digester until June 4, 2014


Solar Photovoltaic

Consumers Energy is offering an incentive program for customers who have installed or wish to install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on their property. Applicants are selected in quarterly phases and given one year to bring their system online. Participants in the program enter into a long-term offer agreement to sell the output from their systems to Consumers Energy at a fixed rate.

Learn more about the Solar program.


Anaerobic Digester

Consumers Energy is accepting applications for our Anaerobic Digester (AD) program. Consumers Energy will select systems between 150 kW and 1,000 kW for a total capacity of 2,400 kW. Selected customers will be eligible to enter into a long term standard offer agreement to feed the output from their systems to the Consumers Energy distribution grid and be compensated at a scheduled rate.
