Whether you’re looking for an easy way to incorporate renewable energy into your life or you’ve committed to an environmentally friendly lifestyle, envirowatts is the right choice for you.
You have the power to choose which renewable energy source you wish to support – solar, wind, biomass and/or hydro. Our voluntary program offers you the opportunity to purchase renewable energy in $2.75 portions, with no maximum. When you purchase envirowatts, you invest in the future of renewable energy in Kentucky.
The envirowatts program began in 2003 with power plants that produce biomass energy from landfill gas. Each plant converts methane that is produced from decaying trash into electricity. These plants still provide the biomass portion of the program, and have been applauded for being both environmentally responsible and cost efficient.To find out more, click on the blue circle to the left.
In 2014, new options were added to envriowatts – solar, wind and hydro.
Envirowatts can be purchased in 100 Kilowatt hour Blocks, The average household uses about 1000 kWh per month, so you could purchase from 1 to 10 blocks. Each block will cost $2.75 above your current cost per 100 kWh. For example, if you purchase 2 blocks, your bill will increase by $5.50. In order to purchase Envirowatts, you must agree to purchase that amount for one year. Click to download an Envirowatts form.
