Green Power Switch

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

By purchasing one 150 kilowatt-hour block of Green Power for $2 each 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.

Each block of Green Power amounts to approximately 12% of a typical household’s energy usage. For each block purchased, the environmental benefit is similar to recycling 120 pounds of aluminum, recycling 440 pounds of newspaper or planting a half-acre of trees locally.

Of course, the best energy policy is smart use and efficiency, because the greenest kilowatt hour is the one that is never used. To learn practical, simple tips for smarter energy use in your home or business, click here.

Green power generated through the program is added to TVA’s total power mix, which is shared by customers throughout the Tennessee Valley.
