What is Green Power Switch?
Green Power Switch is a renewable energy initiative that offers consumers in the Tennessee Valley a choice in the type of power they buy. TVA and local public power companies, working in cooperation with the environmental community, developed Green Power Switch as a way to bring green power—electricity that’s generated by cleaner, renewable resources such as solar, wind, and methane gas—to Valley consumers.
How does green power benefit the environment?
The environmental effects of traditional energy sources like coal, natural gas, oil and nuclear power can be significant. Although no source of energy is impact-free, renewable resources create less waste and pollution. In fact, an investment of an additional $8 per month on your power bill buys enough Green Power Switch to equal the environmental benefits of planting an acre of trees in the Tennessee Valley region.
How will I be billed?
A line item for participation in the Green Power Switch will appear on your monthly power bill.
How will my electricity bill be calculated?
Green Power Switch is sold in 150-kilowatt-hour blocks. Each block adds $4 to the customer’s monthly power bill. Commercial and industrial customers may purchase blocks based on the amount of energy they use.
Why does green power cost more?
Although renewable sources like sunlight and wind are free, the technology used to capture the energy they produce is still more expensive than traditional power generation methods. However, increased demand may lead to expanded power production capacity and eventually to lower costs.
Terms & Conditions
Green Power Switch is certified by the Green-e Renewable Energy Certification Program, which requires companies offering certified products to provide residential electricity customers with this notice of price, terms, and conditions of service. Participation in Green Power Switch is voluntary. A customer may discontinue participation in the program at any time. You may cancel your agreement to participate by contacting CPWS at 931-388-4833 or by sending an email to email@example.com.
Who should I contact for more information?
Contact CPWS at 931-388-4833 or TVA’s Green Power Switch staff at www.greenpowerswitch.com. You may also write to Green Power Switch, P.O. Box 292409, Nashville, TN 37229-2409, or call 615-232-6756.
