Light & Power considers Bay Bucks
Traverse City Light & Power needs to hear from its rate payers if you want to see Bay Bucks taken in payment for electricity. If you are a customer of TCLP, just put a note in with your next power bill payment expressing your interest in Bay Bucks being accepted at Light and Power. No promises are made by the utility, and one would expect only a portion of your bill could be paid with BB, but the potential here is nevertheless fantastic.
Tell your neighbor. Build local economy resilience with your power bill payment ! Jot off a quick letter to the editor, he would love some mail. Spread the word.
If Light and Power takes BB, they could partially pay willing employees with them, who in turn would spend them at neighborhood shops and for local services, food etc. This would be just the jump start Bay Bucks needs.
