Renewable Energy Block Program

The cheapest, easiest, most impactful way to reduce your carbon footprint is to power up your home with a block of renewal energy for $2 a month. Clean, affordable, power from wind, solar, and biogas. The more renewable energy we use, the less coal, oil, and natural gas we’ll burn, which has a dramatic effect on the air we breathe.

There is no special equipment to install, and no change in the way you receive or use energy. You can start (or stop) your participation at any time, and you can use as many blocks of green power as you like.

CO2 Emissions

Spending $2 more for a block of renewable energy can keep a lot of destructive carbon dioxide emissions out of the air. In fact, according to the U.S Environmental Protection Agency, using just one $2 block each month for a year is like not driving your car for six months. And it only takes two or three blocks to run the average home each month. It adds up to a smaller carbon footprint for you and a greener world for your children and your children's children. All for an extra $2.

Controlling Energy Costs

Of course, renewable energy isn’t just good for the planet. It can also help control our community’s energy costs over the long haul. The money you spend on renewable energy gets reinvested in new, energy-efficient alternatives that will help control energy costs in the future. And because it is produced in the Midwest, renewable energy can increase our energy independence.
