Energy for Tomorrow — Large Business

Your business can make a difference in the community and demonstrate its commitment to the environment by purchasing renewable energy. Energy for Tomorrow lets you purchase electricity from renewable resources such as wind and solar.

Purchasing options

Usage percentage: You can choose to have 25, 50 or 100% of your monthly electricity usage charged at the Energy for Tomorrow rate, which is 1.158 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) more than the standard energy charge for purchases less than 70,000 kWh per month. For purchases equal to or greater than 70,000 kWh/month, the renewable energy premium is 0.995 cents/kWh.

Block purchase: You can choose to purchase blocks of renewable energy for 1.158 cents per kWh when purchasing less than 70,000 kWh per month, or 0.995 cents per kWh when purchasing 70,000 kWh or more per month.

Most of the additional charge is used to purchase renewable energy, which is more expensive than traditional sources. Some of the additional charge is used to enroll more participants and to provide program updates.
