Clean energy that's affordable and easy.

Clean energy is important to all of us. In fact, the reliable energy you already receive is 25 percent renewable and 55 percent carbon-free. However, some customers want more. That's why we're proud to offer Renewable*Connect®. With no equipment necessary and access to a blend of wind and solar, Renewable*Connect is an affordable way to benefit from renewable energy.

Energy Saving Tip

Set your hot water heater to no higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This isn't just energy smart—it's also safer, since it reduces the likelihood of accidental burns.

Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Install carbon monoxide detectors and annually hire a qualified contractor to inspect your home for proper ventilation.
