Energy for Tomorrow

Small business renewable energy program

Make a difference in your community and demonstrate your commitment to the environment by purchasing renewable energy.

Energy for Tomorrow provides the option to purchase electricity from renewable energy resources such as wind and solar. When you sign up, 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.

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

Program description

All changes to these tariffs must be submitted to and approved by the applicable state laws and regulatory policies of the public service commission.
