The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) named Dominion Virginia Power as a 2013 Green Power Supplier of the Year. The award is given to utilities that are leaders in offering voluntary renewable energy to their customers.
Since Dominion Green Power started in 2009, participants have supported more than 593,000 MWh of renewable energy. The program offers customers the option to match their home electricity use with renewable energy by either usage or in fixed monthly amounts. The fixed option starts at $2 and can be increased in $2 increments up to the customer’s total energy usage. Each $2 block supports 154 kWh of green power. The option based on usage adds 1.3 cents per kWh, with a typical household using 1,000 kWh paying an additional $13 per month on their bill.
