Supporting regional renewable energy (wind, solar, biomass) and protecting the environment can be as easy as participating in Tennessee Valley Authority’s Green Power Switch® Green-e Energy® Certified program.
Green power is sold in 150-kilowatt-hour blocks (about 10-12% of a typical household’s monthly use) at a cost of $4 per block at the block quantity you choose. Each block you sign up to purchase will be added to your monthly utility bill and ensures that clean, renewable energy is added to TVA’s electricity mix. The length of your Green Power Switch® agreement is completely voluntary and may be terminated at any time with no termination fee.
Investing in Green Power Switch® is a small price to pay for a cleaner, brighter tomorrow. Just purchasing two blocks of green power per month for one year is the environmental equivalent of recycling 15,322 aluminum cans, 1,766 pounds of newspaper or planting an acre of trees.
Jackson Energy Authority not only promotes but also supports green power. Recently, Jackson Energy Authority brought on-line a 2MW Community Solar Project capable of producing approximately 3,500,000 kWh per year which is the equivalent power usage of about 250 homes.
Signing up for the Green Power Switch program takes very little energy - simply call 731-422-7500 get signed up.
