To promote energy efficiency and reduce our power costs, we participate in a variety of pilot projects. MPE seeks to maximize the grid's potential. This process involves investing in smart technologies and data analysis. If a pilot is successful, MPE will expand the program to offer cost savings opportunities for its consumers.
Recently, MPE studied the effects of Level 2 EV chargers on wholesale power costs. As a result we have developed an optional time-of-use rate and EV charging and wiring incentives. Currently, MPE is performing pilot tests on:
- Cold-climate heat pumps
- Smart thermostats for electric heaters
- Smart thermostats for water heaters
