Green Power

By Sheila • Jan 18th, 2008 • Category: Home/Garden, IndianaCity is Phenomenal


Do you flip through the pages of those eco-modern-lifestyle magazines and websites and wonder, “why don’t we have eco-friendly energy and lifestyle choices here in Indianapolis”? Stop wondering my friends, because you do. Indiana Power & Light (IPL) offers their customers the option to purchase electricity generated from clean, renewable energy sources, including wind, solar, geothermal and biomass generation.

The current Green Power premium is only $0.002 per kilowatt-hour (2/10th of a cent) and represents renewable energy purchased from Midwestern wind farms and Indiana landfill gas generation plants. At this premium, a typical residential customer using 1000 kilowatt-hours in a month and enrolled at the 100% level would pay an additional $2 on their IPL electric bill. Yup, that’s it. For the price of a fancy cup of coffee you can significantly reduce your impact on our environment. In 2007 alone, IPL Green Power customer usage circumvented 14,000 metric tons of CO2 = over 3,000 passenger cars being taken off the roads for one year! That’s phenomenal.

The Green Power Option is available to both residential and commercial/industrial IPL customers. Commercial and industrial customers should call their IPL Account Executive for additional informaiton on the premium or to enroll in Green Power.

How do you enroll? You just check a box. That’s it.
