Supporting the use of renewable energy is a real "win-win" for your business and for the community. We make it easy with our Choose Renewable program.
By supporting renewable energy, you can contribute to a cleaner environment and sustainable energy future. Every dollar you invest in renewable energy is used
to foster the growth of renewable resources.
Stand up and be counted.
Future generations will thank you! Our Choose Renewable program makes it easy to invest in a secure energy future and a cleaner environment. You can participate
at whatever level you would like, change your participation level at any time, or withdraw from the program with no cancellation fee.
'Buying green' is also good for business. Studies show that people have a more favorable view of - and are more likely to buy services from - companies that demonstrate concern for the environment.
Getting started is quick and easy
Supporting renewable energy is a simple decision to make. There is no special equipment to install, and no change in the way your organization receives or uses energy.
To sign up, just choose an amount of renewable energy that's equal to some or all of your monthly electric usage. You can change your participation level or withdraw
from the program at any time.
You pay just $3.00 additional per month for each block of renewable energy, the equivalent of 300 kilowatt hours (kWh). If you're interested in purchasing 100 blocks
or more, be sure to contact us
before enrolling online so you can learn more about our discounted rate for large purchases.
Why renewable energy?
- It's clean. The more energy we use from renewable resources, the less we will need to rely on fossil-fuel based energy. We can reduce carbon dioxide
emissions -- which contribute to climate change -- and keep the air we breathe cleaner.
- It's sustainable. Renewable energy sources such as wind, water, biogas and solar can never be depleted. That's simply not true of conventional generation
sources such as coal, oil and natural gas. And because it's produced from resources that are available here at home, renewable energy can increase our energy independence.
- It's forward-thinking. Diversifying our power supply by adding renewable resources offers long-term advantages. For example, this limits our exposure to
expected increases in the costs of fossil fuel generation. Increasing the use of renewable resources can help control energy costs in the future, particularly when
combined with energy efficiency and conservation measures.
- It's the responsible thing to do. If we want to ensure an unlimited supply of energy resources for future generations, renewable energy is the way to go.
