Oberlin Municipal Light and Power manages a Sustainable Reserve Program funded by the net proceeds due to the sale of renewable energy certificates (RECs) derived from Oberlin’s renewable power supply. The program is designed to offer environmental, social and economic benefits to the City’s electric customers on a community-wide basis. The City of Oberlin encourages and welcomes community input regarding the Sustainable Reserve Program which meet the Oberlin City Council adopted guidelines of municipal electric services for energy efficiency, energy conservation, green-house gas emission reductions, and renewable energy projects.  Please contact Doug McMillan, OMLPS Director, at 440-775-7261 or dmcmillan@omlps.org to submit ideas and suggestions.

It is important to note that the City has not reviewed the suggested uses of the Sustainable Reserve Program to determine compliance with the Ohio Revised Code (ORC).
