Switch MOPC will now be taking quotes for all types of energy efficient home upgrades! These upgrades include Heat Pumps, Solar PV, Windows and Doors, Insulation and more!

Welcome to the Switch MOPC Program!


Our Council recognizes the importance of doing our part to limit the release of greenhouse gases and the effects of climate change. Our residents can each play a part in this effort but oftentimes the capital dollars needed to make necessary changes in their own home are insurmountable, even though it would lead to significant savings in the long run. For that reason, MOPC is initiating the Switch MOPC Program that will allow County residents to borrow the capital costs from their local government for improvements to their personal home that will lead to energy savings, including solar installations and pay back over a number of years. Together, we can all do our part to reverse the negative effects of climate change and save money at the same time.
