How much does green power cost?
The cost of electricity generated from renewable resources such as solar and wind can be higher than
the cost of electricity generated by traditional inexpensive methods like coal. When purchasing a green
power product, your dollars are going towards the technology it takes to produce the energy.
For example, if you select a 100% renewable product with 50% solar and 50% wind, then you are paying a
solar and wind plant to generate the electricity and feed it into the main power grid. As demand for green
power increases, more cost-effective methods for renewable generation will be built resulting in a lower
cost for consumers.
