100% clean energy with only 1% effort
For years our members have challenged us to offer an option to claim 100% renewable power. We’re excited to offer Green Switch 100 to answer our members’ growing interest in clean, local energy. This program allows members to offset 100% of their energy usage with minimal cost while eliminating the ups and downs in energy generation that comes from a local solar field.
How does it work?
Members who participate offset 100% of their electricity usage with renewable power while paying only 1 cent per kilowatt-hour. For example, if you use 1,248 kilowatt-hours in a month, we will add $12.48 to your bill. TVA generates the same amount of energy using renewable sources like solar, biogas, and wind. TVA generates the exact amount on your behalf.
This month-to-month program offers flexibility and sustainability while providing an easy solution to meet our members’ goals.
Who should consider signing up?
Because any member can participate, we recommend this program to anyone interested in claiming 100% clean, renewable energy consumption and reducing their carbon footprint, including EV owners, solar enthusiasts, and nature lovers. That means members living in single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums, apartments, and any other place they call home can participate if they receive a bill from MTE.
Frequently Asked Questions
This is a new green energy program where MTE and TVA will match 100% of your monthly kilowatt-hour usage with renewable energy for an additional 1 cent per kilowatt-hour. Your monthly energy usage is offset by renewable energy generated in the Tennessee Valley with a mixture solar, wind, and biogas.
The renewable program is open to residential members and low consumption business members designated as GSA-1 and GSA-2. Businesses with higher energy demand are encouraged to participate in the Green Invest program.
The Green Switch 100 program gives our members an option to participate in a true 100% renewable program. This option allows property owners and renters to use green energy when reasons like cost or site restrictions prevent them from creating their own solution. Now we are able to help them meet their green energy goals while lowering the obstacles to using renewable technology.
The program provides a flexible, low-cost option for members to support and claim 100% renewable-energy offset for their home or building. We offer a low month-to-month cost with no long-term contract and no upfront cost. This program can save you time and money when compared to the installation and maintenance costs associated with building your own renewable generation sources.
