Purchase Carbon Offsets for your Event

Organizing a big event, like a wedding or business conference? Make it eco-friendly with EPB renewable energy credits! It’s quick and easy to make a positive impact on our community when you purchase SolarShare credits generated by EPB’s community solar panels right here in Chattanooga. Use the following calculator to see how many credits you’ll need to power your event with clean and green solar.

When you purchase credits for your event, you’ll receive a digital certificate and authorized use of the solar share logo to use on your invitations, signage and website.


In addition to your electricity use’s impact, EPB has created a calculator that estimated the emissions associated with traveling and dining out. EPB’s SolarShare credits are not the best solution to mitigate these impacts, but there are many organizations that offer carbon offsets that could assist in minimizing your footprint.
