Renewable Choice Calculator

How it works

The Renewable Choice Calculator combines shares from the Solar Share Program and blocks from the Green Energy Program to provide a combined solution for customers who want to support both local community solar in Simpsonville, Kentucky and regional renewable energy from bordering states. Most customers can support renewables at a level that is equal to 100% of their normal energy use for less than $1 per day or 5% more on their monthly energy bill.
