Making the Green Power Switch helps our community support cleaner, more environmentally friendly energy generation options, in partnership with TVA.

By purchasing one or more 150 kilowatt-hour blocks of Green Power for $4 each per month, you support the use of renewable energy resources like wind, solar power and methane gas. These resources generate energy with less pollution, from sources right here in the Chattanooga area. While no energy resource is completely impact-free, each block of Green Power you purchase makes a difference.

Part of our Smart Grid system, digital smart meters have the ability to communicate with the power system and measure your electric consumption every 15 minutes. You can view your own consumption online and EPB will also know within 15 minutes if there’s a power outage or unusual consumption at your home or business in order to respond immediately and fix the problem.

A REC refers to specifically 1 megawatt of electricity’s environmental benefits. Offsets refer to any increment of environmental benefits less than 1 megawatt hour.

Green Power Switch charges $4 for 150 kWh of a mix of alternative generation, mainly wind from across TVA’s service territory. EPB Solar Share offsets are $5 for 100 kWh of local, Chattanooga-made, 100% solar power.
