Grundy Electric members may buy 100 Kilowatt Hour blocks of electricity from renewable sources and must commit to purchase green power for one year. Because renewable energy is more expensive, members wishing to purchase blocks of renewable energy will be charged the additional premium cost, based on the amount of renewable power they buy. Only those members wishing to buy renewable energy blocks will be charged the additional cost. No changes are required in the service at the member’s house because renewable energy is just like the electricity you buy now. There is no difference between electricity generated by burning coal, natural gas, solar or generated by wind turbines. The only difference is that now, Grundy Electric has the option to buy green power and make it available to you.
