Bright Energy Choices
Giving you the choice to go 100 percent renewable
Last year, 44 percent of Sioux Center Municipal Utilities customers' energy came from renewable resources, including wind, solar, and hydroelectric power.
That’s pretty awesome. But you want more.
The new Bright Energy Choices program allows you to effectively set that percentage at 100 percent.
You make the choice, and we’ll do the rest
When you sign up for Bright Energy Choices, our wholesale power supplier, Missouri River Energy Services, will purchase Renewable Energy Certificates on your behalf. RECs are proof that electricity was generated by qualifying renewable facilities - like wind and solar farms, which use naturally-replenished resources - and fed into the grid.
These REC purchases will offset the non-renewable portion of your energy consumption, making your usage, in effect, 100 percent renewable. A premium of one-half penny ($0.005) per kilowatt-hour of energy will be added to the non-renewable portion of electricity you use (56% in 2019).
A small step
For an average homeowner using 1,000 kWh per month, the monthly Bright Energy Choices premium would be about $2.80. With your simple choice, you power your home with renewable resources and invest in a brighter future.

Here are the details:
If you sign up, Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) will be purchased on your behalf and an additional premium of one-half penny ($0.005) will be applied to the non-renewable portion (56%) of your kilowatt-hour usage each month.
Participation in Bright Energy Choices will begin Jan. 1, 2020 and renew automatically on January 1 of each year, but you can cancel at any time - just notify Sioux Center Municipal Utilities in writing.
Sioux Center Municipal Utilities may adjust the Bright Energy Choices premium annually based on purchase cost of RECs and they will notify participants of any changes prior to taking effect. Call us at (712) 722-0761 with questions!
