EnviroWatts is our name for green power, energy generated from environmentally preferred, renewable resources such as biomass (landfill gas), sun, wind, water and geothermal springs.
EnviroWatts can be purchased in 100 Kilowatt-hour blocks. The average household uses about 1,000 kWh per month, so you could purchase from 1 to 10 blocks. Each block will cost $2.75 above your current cost per 100 kWh. For example, if you purchase 2 blocks, your bill will increase by $5.50.
