With Dominion Energy Green Power, you have two options to participate:
- 100% Option: This option allows you to purchase RECs to match your monthly electricity use. This cost is calculated by adding an additional 1.3 cents ($0.013) per kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity used to your monthly bill amount.
- Block Option: This option allows you to purchase RECs in any $2 fixed increment - as much as you wish. Each block guarantees that 154 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of renewable energy is delivered to our power pool.
Your monthly charge for Green Power is in addition to your monthly electric bill. This extra charge appears on an enrolled customer's monthly electricity bill as "Green Power (Rider G).” Here's an example of what it looks like on your bill.
You may cancel or change your participation level at any time without penalty and participation in Dominion Energy Green Power requires no changes to your facilities.
Meet Your Environmental Goals
Across the country, businesses such as Starbucks, DuPont, Whole Foods, and IBM are purchasing renewable energy certificates to meet environmental and sustainability goals, and to exhibit their commitment to renewable energy to their customers.
Participating in a program like Dominion Energy Green Power is an easy and affordable option for your business to meet your goals and make a difference.
The RECs sold in our program also qualify for LEED credit. Matching a portion of your building's energy use with Dominion Energy Green Power is an easy and cost-effective way to earn points for the U.S. Green Business Council's Energy & Atmosphere Green Power Credit. Contact the USGBC for more information on achieving LEED certification.
Even the smallest business can make a big difference. For example, the renewable energy purchased for an additional $10 a month added to your existing bill is equal to taking a car off the road for a year*.
*According to the U.S. EPA, the average car is driven 11,318 miles per year. For more information see the US EPA Green Power Equivalency Calculator. Green-e Energy does not certify or verify carbon emissions claims or methodologies for calculating emissions related to biomass.
