Who We Are

Mayor Michael McGlynn created the Medford Clean Energy Committee (MCEC) in January 2004 to augment the city's effort to become a municipal leader in the use of clean power.

Our goal is to promote clean power options and encourage the development of renewable energy in Medford.

Clean Energy in Medford

  • A 100kw wind turbine provides 10% of the power needs of the McGlynn Middle School
  • Solar panels in Medford supply electricity for City Hall and lights at Hormel Stadium
  • Over 290 Medford residents purchased renewable energy through GreenUp™
  • Plans are underway to install $100,000 worth of additional solar panels

Why Clean Energy?

  • To protect Medford from rising utility costs
  • To improve air quality and public health from the effects of emissions produced by local power plants
  • To reduce America's dependence on foreign sources of energy
  • To help our global community offset climate change
