The Green Power Choice program empowers CEC members to support renewable energy and technology development through the purchase of green power.
Through a partnership among local electric cooperatives, PowerSouth and Waste Management, methane gas from Springhill Regional Landfill in Campbellton, Fla., is extracted and burned to generate 4.8 megawatts of green energy. Members may participate in Green Power Choice for as little as $2 per month in addition to their normal energy bill. Members purchase green power in 100-kilowatt-hour blocks. The minimum participation period is one year.
Buying two blocks of green power per month for a year equals recycling 480 lbs. of aluminum or recycling 1,766 lbs. of newspaper. If you are interested in signing up for the Green Power Choice Program, please call any CEC office.
