Did you know that SoCal Edison offers a green rate? You can get all or part of your energy from renewable resources without having to put solar panels on your roof!
If you’re a renter like me or aren’t able to invest in solar panels, this is your chance to get clean green energy.
It’s also a great way to support solar initiatives so we can create demand for green energy.
Ok, so how much is it?
It costs a wee bit more. Your energy costs will be 3.15 cents higher for each kilowatt hour (kWh) of usage.
You can elect to have 50% or 100% of your energy to come from solar energy sources.
To give you an idea of how much you can expect to see your bill go up, if your bill is $100:
- By switching to 50% renewable energy, your bill will go up $9 per month
- By switching to 100% renewable energy, your bill will go up $17 per month
The Green Cottage switched to renewable energy in November 2016 and our bill went up a whole $4 a month. So for us, it was pretty affordable and a total no brainer.
How do I sign up?
