EcoChoice is a Cool Alternative to Solar Energy
You can now get up to 100% of your energy from renewable sources, even if you don’t own your own home or can’t install solar panels on your roof. With EcoChoice℠, you can get up to 100% of your energy from clean or renewable sources every month.
Special Notice for Commercial Customers Only
EcoChoice has reached its enrollment capacity for commercial customers only. If you’re a commercial customer interested in enrolling, complete an application and you’ll be added to our waitlist. We'll contact you once space is available. The program is still available for residential customers.
How It Works
You sign up to have from 50% to 100% of your electricity come from renewable sources. What you pay depends on the amount you select for each month. A Residential customer, opting for 100% renewable energy, using an average of 500 kWh a month, pays an additional 86 cents a month. Get an estimate of your potential costs.
When you enroll, we buy renewable energy from generating facilities built specifically for EcoChoice. Your participation helps support additional renewable energy facilities: 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 will be used until new renewable energy generating facilities come online.
EcoChoice is Green-e Energy certified, and meets the environmental and consumer-protection standards set forth by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions. Learn more at www.green-e.org
