Did you know that approximately 90% of the power distributed by Delaware County Electric Cooperative (DCEC) comes from the Niagara Project, which is a source of clean hydro renewable electricity? The Co-op has developed a program for members to become 100% Green if they choose. The program is called GO 100% GREEN. This program allows the other 10% of incremental power purchased for you by your Co-op to be environmentally friendly. The source of renewable energy credits for the GO 100% GREEN program is a landfill gas energy project owned and operated by fellow cooperative, Steuben Rural Electric Cooperative, in Bath, NY. Please keep in mind that DCEC’s GO 100% GREEN is completely voluntary. If you choose, this would be an easy and affordable option to support renewable energy directly through your electric bill. There is no cancellation fee and you can terminate this program at any time. This program allows the member to purchase Renewable Energy Credits monthly, which will depend on the member’s total monthly kWh usage. The 2016 cost will be only $0.006 per kWh of use.


Example Bill:

Monthly Fixed Charge                                                     $20.00

Energy Charge   1000 kWh @ .10895                             $108.95

Power Cost Adj 1000 kWh @ -.00983                              -$9.83

Go 100% Green 100 kWh @ 0.00600                             $0.60

Load Mgmt Credit                                                            -$4.00

Formulary Rate Adj         1000 kWh @ 0                          $0.00

Current Charges Due                                                       $115.72


In this example, a member who would have paid $115.12 would now pay $115.72 due to their participation in the Go 100% Green program.
