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.
