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 Switch, Tennessee Valley Authority’s (TVA) Green-e Energy certified program, allows residential and business customers the option to support renewable energy by making a monthly investment. For every $2 that Green Switch participants add to their electricity bill, TVA ensures that 200 kilowatt-hours of their electricity consumption comes from a renewable source. That’s assurance of action to help protect our environment and reduce carbon footprint. Get more information on all of TVA's renewable progeams at TVA's Tennessee Valley Renewable Energy website.
Green Switch meets environmental and consumer-protection standards set forth by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions. Although no source of energy is impact-free, renewable resources create less waste and pollution. In fact, an investment of an additional $8 per month on your power bill buys enough Green Power Switch to equal the environmental benefits of not driving a car for over six months. Investing in Green Switch is a small price to pay to help keep the air in the Tennessee Valley cleaner, while supporting clean-technology economic development in the region.
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.
