Supporting regional renewable energy (wind, solar, biomass) and protecting the environment can be as easy as participating in Tennessee Valley Authority’s Green 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 Switch agreement is completely voluntary and may be terminated at any time with no termination fee.
Investing in Green Switch is a small price to pay for a cleaner, brighter tomorrow. Just purchasing two blocks of green power allows you to match 25% of your monthly energy use. Each month, the renewable energy generation associated with your 2 block purchase will be roughly the carbon dioxide reduction equivalent of using 20 gallons of gasoline, driving 433 miles or burning 195 pounds of coal. *Green-e Energy does not certify or verify carbon emissions claims or methodologies for calculating emissions related to biogas.
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.
