Renewable Connect

Power your business with clean energy.

The low-cost, clean and reliable energy you receive from us includes 27 percent renewable energy and is 56 percent carbon free. However, more businesses and communities are seeking additional clean, renewable energy sources to meet their sustainable energy needs and reduce carbon emissions. That's why we're proud to offer Renewable*Connect®. It provides an easy, affordable path to renewable power. We're enabling your business to utilize a blend of locally sourced wind and solar energy without the need to invest in equipment.

Interested?

The Renewable*Connect program is now fully subscribed. We are accepting applications for the program waitlist, which will be used in the event program capacity becomes available.

Meet Environmental Goals

With Renewable*Connect, the associated Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) are retired on your behalf, which is an important distinction from other types of renewable programs. This allows your business to make claims on the use of renewable energy, achieve LEED® certification, and communicate the positive impact your business is making on the environment.

Energy Saving Tip

Heat or cool a smaller area by closing vents in rooms that are not in use. You’ll stay more comfortable when you're managing less air space.

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
