RECs used for EcoSmart Choice are certifiable under the rules of the Green-e® Energy program operated by the Center for Resource Solutions. They are currently sourced from hydroelectric, landfill gas or wind facilities.
All CBPU residential and commercial/industrial electric customers are able to offset up to 100% of their electric usage with renewable energy for as little as an additional .004 cents per kWh. For example, if a customer uses 750 kWh in a month and chooses to participate at the 100% level, the EcoSmart Choice Program will purchase an equal number of RECs to match that monthly usage, and the customer would pay an additional $3.00 as part of their utility bill that month to cover their participation in the program. Customers who choose to participate at the 25%, 50%, or 75% levels, will see proportionately smaller increases on their bills.
