Wind turbines Green power, in its simple form, is defined as electricity that is generated by using renewable energy sources that have minimal impact upon the earth. Two of the more commonly known renewable energy sources are wind and solar.

Their popularity is based on the fact that they are naturally produced, have low operational costs, and that they produce electricity without emissions.

CU offers renewable energy to customers that can be generated from various sources ľ such as wind, solar, low-head hydro, geothermal or biomass.

Renewable energy is available for your home or business in blocks of 100 kilowatt-hours. There is a monthly customer charge of $2.25, plus the cost of the renewable energy ľ which is currently $1.40 per block. This makes 1 block of renewable energy only $3.65 each month; 2 blocks = $5.05; 3 blocks = $6.45; and so on.

CU's commitment to the environment has led to many energy research projects, utilizing wind, solar and landfill sources. For more information on these projects, including the Noble Hill Landfill Renewable Energy Center, visit our Renewable Energy page.
