About Us: 

There is a new and exciting renewable energy program in Moorhead called "Capture The Energy®." Capture The Energy® was developed by Moorhead Public Service (MPS) to promote renewable energy in Moorhead.

If you are interested in local renewable energy, there are several ways you can participate:

Rebates for Small Energy Projects. If you invest in your own renewable energy system, MPS will provide a rebate of up to $1,500 per kilowatt (kW) on qualifying projects while funds are available. (Funds are fully expended and unavailable at this time. 2/5/2015) Contact MPS’ Energy Services Manager Dennis Eisenbraun at 218.477.8018 or deisenbraun@mpsutility.com for details.

Learn For Yourself. Moorhead’s first 750-kW wind turbine went into production in 1999, the second wind turbine in 2001, and in 2011, MPS installed a 10-kW solar electric system between the two wind turbines. This solar electric system has been installed to demonstrate and study the feasibility of solar photovoltaics in our community. Please feel free to stop by the Capture The Energy Site at 2200 28th Street North and take a look for yourself.
