Green Power Choice offers our members the option of purchasing blocks of power generated from methane gas, a renewable resource.
This program gives our members a simple way to support renewable energy by purchasing blocks of green power from Baldwin EMC. Green power is available in 100-kilowatt hour blocks. Your first five blocks will cost $2 each, and it’s just 15 cents for every block after that. These charges are in addition to your regular kilowatt-hour charge.
An example of the pricing is as follows:
100 kilowatt-hours (1 block) = $2.00
300 kilowatt-hours (3 blocks) = $6.00
500 kilowatt-hours (5 blocks) = $10.00
1000 kilowatt-hours (10 blocks) = $10.75
1500 kilowatt-hours (15 blocks) = $11.50
2000 kilowatt-hours (20 blocks) = $12.25
2500 kilowatt-hours (25 blocks) = $13.00
3000 kilowatt-hours (30 blocks) = $13.75
Buying two blocks of green power per month for a year equals recycling 480 lbs. of aluminum or 1,766 lbs. of newspaper.
