With the option of purchasing Green Power, Laurens Electric Cooperative, Inc. customers can now directly reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emitted into the atmosphere.
Green Power is electricity generated from a renewable resource, in this case a landfill that converts methane gas into electric power. The methane gas that would normally be released into the atmosphere – gases that possibly contribute to global warming – will be used as “green power” fuel.
An additional investment in $6 per month on your electric bill for one year buys enough Green Power to equal the environment benefits of not driving your vehicle for three months (EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator using 200 kWh/month for the state of South Carolina). By participating in the Green Power program, you not only ensure its success now, but FOR many generations to come. Click here for Frequently Asked Questions about Green Power.
