Evergreen was developed to provide members an opportunity to voluntarily contribute to the increased use of renewable energy sources without the financial burden of installing their own larger system. Starting at $0.65 per month, a member is assigned one Evergreen block of 100 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean, renewable energy. Evergreen will appear as a line item on the participating member’s monthly electric bill.
There are many ways to power a home, farm or business through Evergreen’s multiple program options:
- Evergreen Everyone: Members can support renewable energy in increments of 100 kilowatt-hour (kWh) blocks for just $0.65 per block per month ($0.0065 per kWh).
- Evergreen Everyday: Members who purchase a new electric water heater from the co-op and are on the storage strategy can receive four Evergreen blocks, upon request, to help keep their water hot.
- Evergreen Everywhere: Members who are on the Electric Vehicle charging rate can receive four Evergreen blocks, upon request.
- Evergreen Everything: Through Evergreen Everything, members can have 100 percent of their electricity use generated by renewable energy in 100 kWh blocks. The average cooperative home uses around 1,000 kWh per month, which equals $6.50 per month to be a green home. The co-op will calculate the number of blocks based on your last year's electric use.
