Your Energy Choices
A resilient and clean energy future is a priority for us as we serve you. In addition to the significant portion of our power supply mix that comes to us from renewable and carbon-free sources, you may be considering additional ways to improve your environmental impact.
We offer load management to keep the cost of electricity lower for customers and to avoid the cost and impact of building new electric generation to meat peak demands. Load management helps our community as a whole reduce the peak amount of electricity we use. Learn more about Load Management.
Bright Energy Choices
We offer a program that lets us and our customers support the development of additional carbon-free, renewable energy resources, called Bright Energy Choices. You can choose to participate in Bright Energy Choices, paying a small premium to contribute to the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates to offset the portion of your energy that comes from fossil fuels.
