Consumers Energy’s Experimental Advanced Renewables Program (EARP) is actually what most of the world calls a “feed-in tariff”; it allows owners of solar panels to sell the power directly to Consumers and earn a fair return.
Consumers first launched its EARP in 2010 as one way to help it meet its state-mandated goal of 10 percent renewable energy by 2015. The deadline for the next drawing, which will be for the utility’s business customers, is March 29; the company is now accepting applications and holds an informational session in Saginaw on March 5.
Date: Monday, March 5, 2012, 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Location: Saginaw, Saginaw Valley State University
Deadline for Applications: March 29 Details at: www.consumersenergy.com/News.aspx?id=5314&year=2012
