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 originally was a landfill gas energy project owned and operated by fellow cooperative, Steuben Rural Electric Cooperative, in Bath, NY. In 2020, rules and definitions changed such that only wind and solar projects that have renewable energy credits (RECs) available in the energy marketplace are considered "green renewable".
Maple Ridge Wind Turbine #1 Project in Lewis County, New York, was the source of program RECs for years 2019 and 2020.
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 2021 fixed base cost for GO 100% GREEN will be $0.006 per kWh of use. The 2022 base charge will be $0.006 per kWh and may be adjusted quarterly for hedging market auction pricing.
Example Bill with program:
In this example, a member who would have paid $122.62 would now pay $123.22 due to their participation in the GO 100% GREEN program.
