Beginning Jan. 1, 2023, Riverland Energy’s Evergreen program will offer updated pricing for members of $0.65 per 100 kilowatt-hour (kWh) block. Blocks were previously $1 per 100 kWh block.
Since 1998, Evergreen has been a voluntary green power program that supports more renewable energy resources within Dairyland Power Cooperative’s generation portfolio.
We know many of our members want to support more renewable energy. However, to own their own system, such as solar or small wind, is not feasible either due to cost, maintenance, property restrictions or another reason. Evergreen is an easy and budget-friendly way for any cooperative member to ‘be green.
The retired renewable energy credits (RECs) assigned to Riverland Energy’s Evergreen program are generated at Dairyland’s renewable generation facilities and power purchase agreements, which include solar, wind, hydro and biogas resources.
Evergreen blocks allocated to members are in addition to any federal or state requirements. Payment for a member’s blocks will be included as a line item on their monthly electric bill and is in addition to the member’s monthly electric bill.
