The term “Green Power” refers to electricity supplied from renewable energy sources which have a lower impact on the environment. A resource is called renewable if it can be naturally replenished, such as solar, wind, hydro, biomass, and geothermal energy. A Green Power blended product is a combination of fossil fuels and renewable resources.
As a T.I.P. Rural Electric Cooperative member-owner, you have the opportunity to buy renewable or Green Power energy. Through Green Power pricing, you will pay a Green Power charge to cover the extra cost of renewable energy. Green Power is available in blocks of 100 kWh at a cost of $2.00 per block per month. This charge is added on top of your normal monthly electric bill as a separate line item. A contract of 12 months is required to participate. You decide the number of Green Power energy blocks you want to purchase if you choose to enroll.
It is important to remember that the Green Power you purchase is not actually delivered to your home. Instead, it is generated and supplied to the power grid. From there it will be delivered into the T.I.P. system that serves all our member-owners.
We welcome your participation and are pleased to offer this option to you. Remember when you purchase Green Power, the benefit is displacing other non-renewable energy sources from the grid. If you have any questions, please call our office at 800-934-7976. If you are interested in purchasing green power, please enroll by filling out the Alternate Energy Agreement.
