Green Power Switch, provided by TVA, is a simple way for BVU customers to increase regional renewable energy and protect the local environment for future generations. For as little as $4 a month you can support renewable electricity from sources such as wind, solar and biomass.
Although the price of renewable energy is generally decreasing, it still costs more to produce than energy from traditional sources. Your purchase of Green Power Switch helps cover the difference in the cost. Each $4 block of Green Power Switch ensures 150 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity is generated in the Tennessee Valley region by a renewable resource. This is in addition to the renewable and clean energy already included in TVA’s standard energy supply.
To sign up, just complete TVA’s form here, including BVU as your power company, your BVU account number and the amount of green power you’d like to sponsor each month.
