Join our Green Energy program to make a difference
For as little as $5 a month, you can directly support the growth and long-term viability of regional renewable energy operators and the broader renewable energy industry. Renewable energy has significant up-front costs and voluntary purchases of Renewable Energy Certificates plays an essential role in helping operators recover these costs more quickly, encouraging reinvestment in the renewable energy economy.
The Green Energy program will use your monetary contributions to purchase Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) on your behalf. A REC represents the property rights to the environmental, social, and other non-power benefits of 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of renewable electricity. The Green Energy program provides an easy way for you to obtain RECs and their associated benefits, as well as show your support for renewable generators and the industry.
Green-e Energy certifies that the Green Energy program meets the environmental and consumer protection standards established by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions. For more information on Green-e Energy certification requirements log on to http://www.green-e.org/.
