Renewable Energy To Power Your Home
"Going green" has become more than a trend over the past few years. Residents and businesses all over the country have made a more concerted effort to help the environment by matching a percentage of their electricity use with renewable energy.
Renewable energy, also known as green energy, generally refers to electricity generated by resources that replenish themselves naturally, such as the sun, wind, earth, and water. Although the exact definition of “renewable” fuels varies depending on the governing program, law or regulations, they typically include solar, biomass, wind, hydro, and geothermal.
We supply our residential customers in select electric distribution company service areas with renewable wind energy. This renewable wind power is generated by wind turbines, located on wind farms within specific control areas.
The average U.S. household uses about 10,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year. Every purchase of renewable energy helps support renewable electricity production and development in the local power grid. The purchase may have other environmental benefits such as reducing climate change and air pollution.
