What is GreenPower?

GreenPower is electricity generated by renewable resources like the sun and methane gas that is found in landfills. These resources are replenished naturally. GreenPower is generated by Santee Cooper and distributed by electric cooperatives across the state….from the Upstate to the Lowcountry.

GreenPower in South Carolina is the clean, renewable energy alternative that powers our future!

Why is my electric coopertive offering GreenPower?

GreenPower provides you a direct opportunity to help our environment by supporting electricity generated from renewable power sources. By voluntarily participating in the GreenPower program, you and your electric cooperative are proving your commitment to community by helping improve our environment.

Where does GreenPower come from?

At this stage of GreenPower development, the primary source of renewable energy comes from methane gas that is found in landfills across South Carolina. In addition, a small part comes from solar energy and wind.

How much does GreenPower cost?

Each 100 kilowatt-hour block will add a mere $3 to your monthly electric bill. One block (100 kWh) is approximately 10 percent of a typical household’s monthly energy use. There is no equipment to buy, and you won’t have to change your lifestyle one bit. You can sign up for as many blocks as you like, knowing that you are doing your part in helping the environment and making renewable energy resources and facilities a reality.

Where does the money go?

All revenue from the sale of GreenPower is reinvested in future development of renewable energy resources such as solar energy, and educational projects such as Solar Schools.

Does GreenPower really make a difference?

By trapping methane gas and turning it into useful energy, your electric cooperative is helping to rid the environment of a dangerous greenhouse gas. Fortunately, as fuel, the gas is a renewable energy and has no waste. What’s more, for just 2 dimes a day GreenPower has the environmental impact of not driving a car for almost 3 months or planting over 1/3 acre of trees for a year.**

How do I participate?

GreenPower is a totally voluntary program. To participate, call your electric cooperative. Or simply fill out this form and drop it off at your nearest co-op office or send it in with your next bill payment.
