The Green Power Program provides two easy and convenient ways for members to participate in renewable energy. You may sign up for either, or both, programs by completing the form below.
Renewable Energy Certificates
If you want to offset your consumption with renewable energy, GCEA will purchase and retire Renewable Energy Certificates (REC) on your behalf. Your RECs will be created when renewable energy is generated and delivered to GCEA’s power supplier. In addition, 25% of the fee you pay will go to the Local Renewable Project Development Fund.
Local Renewable Project Development Fund
If you want to support the future development of local projects, you can sign up for a monthly contribution. Your contribution will be combined with other contributions and used when needed to overcome a financial hurdle to a local project. GCEA is currently working on possible solar and hydro projects. GCEA will not purchase RECs for you under this option.
Local Renewable Fund Balance is $5,349.03.
Power Supply Mix
GCEA’s base power supply includes 30% renewable energy. All members get this regardless of participation in these programs.
