As a public owned utility, MID provides benefits to its business partners and to our local community. Our not-for-profit status allows us to focus on our customers, not shareholders. We pass on lower electric costs to our customers while our elected board keeps the needs of our local community a priority. Because we are focused on efficiency and the local community, we are able to get new projects online quickly.

MID Supports Merced College Lighting Improvements with $85,100 Rebate
In January 2013, Merced Irrigation District delivered a rebate check to Merced College totaling $85,158 for improvements made to the school’s lighting system.
The lighting project involved retrofitting more than 7,000 light fixtures and is expected to reduce the College’s energy usage by 1.2 million kilowatt-hours per year. This represents an annual savings of approximately $137,000. The rebate was made available through a state program requiring money be made available for projects that reduce energy usage and increase efficiency. “This is a great day for MID and for Merced College,” said Don Ouchley, deputy general manager of MID Energy Resources. “Merced College has been a longtime customer. We are pleased they have been able to reduce both the college’s operating costs and its energy consumption.” To read more about MID’s energy rebate program, please click here.
