ADVANCING GREEN ENERGY
Green Switch is a renewable energy initiative that offers consumers in the Tennessee Valley a choice in the type of power they buy. TVA and local power distributors, working in cooperation with the environmental community, developed Green Switch as a way to bring power that's generated by cleaner renewable resources to Valley consumers.
Making the Green Switch is as easy as flipping a light switch. You can buy green power in 200-kilowatt-hour blocks (about 16.0 percent of a typical household's monthly energy use). Each block you sign up to purchase will add $ $2 to your monthly power bill. You can buy just one block or as many as you like. The green power you purchase will be added to TVA's electric system as part of the Valley's total power mix.
Why does green power cost more? Because while renewable resources like sunlight may be free, the technology used to capture the energy these resources produce is still more expensive than traditional power generation methods. By choosing to pay a little more for Green Switch, you help advance the technology and increase the amount of electricity generated from cleaner sources.
In the spirit of renewability, the dollars from every block of green power you buy go directly back into Green Switch. If you are a Gibson EMC member who would like to sign-up for Green Switch or would like more information, click here.
