You can now get up to 100% of your energy from renewable sources. EcoChoiceSM is a great option if you want more renewable energy, but don’t own your home, can’t afford the upfront costs of solar or don’t have the ability to put solar panels on your roof.
How much does it cost
For many customers, EcoChoice costs a few dollars a month. You can use our EcoChoice Cost Calculator to estimate your cost each month to purchase renewable energy.
How It Works
You can enroll to have from 50% to up to 100% of your electricity come from renewable and pay a premium each month based on the amount of renewable energy you select. When you enroll, we buy renewable energy from generating facilities built specifically for EcoChoice. The more renewable energy you buy the more renewable generation we can build.
Renewable energy facilities take time to build, so a temporary pool of solar facilities (Interim Pool) will be used until new renewable energy generating facilities come online.
