Green Option for Electricity
Electricity without pollution: a powerful reward. Help us reduce pollution by adding the Green Option when you sign up for Energy Plus® electric service, and we'll repay your concern for the earth with your choice of rewards.
How it works. Energy Plus' Green Option supports the creation of 100 percent pure wind power - one of the cleanest forms of electricity available that is produced without greenhouse emissions. For about a penny more per kilowatt hour, we will purchase Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) produced by wind power generation facilities located in the United States to match 100% of your electricity usage. Learn more about the Green Option by visiting the FAQ page.
*For every unit of renewable electricity generated, one Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) is produced. RECs support renewable electricity production in the United States and help build a market for renewable electricity. RECs may also have other local and global environmental benefits such as reducing global climate change and air pollution in the region where the renewable facility is located.
