Residential customers can sign up to purchase Green Energy in 100 kWh blocks for a 12-month time period. Each 100 kWh block represents approximately 10 percent of the average residential monthly electricity bill. Multiple blocks of Green Energy may be purchased. Residential customers have two different options to choose from when purchasing Green Energy from Georgia Power:
1. Standard Green Energy Option: Adds $3.50 (plus tax) a month per 100 kWh block to your normal power bill.. This option delivers Green-e Energy® certified renewable energy that is generated entirely from biomass resources.
2. Premium Green Energy with Solar Option: $5.00 (plus tax) a month per 100 kWh block. This option delivers Green-e Energy® certified renewable energy that contains a mix of at least 50 percent solar energy.
Each block of renewable energy that is purchased will simply be added as a separate line item to your monthly Georgia Power bill. The purchase of Green Energy will not interfere with other billing options. After the initial 12-month period, you will be automatically re-enrolled unless you notify Georgia Power of your wishes to withdraw from the program.

Due to the way electricity is transmitted and distributed, energy purchased or produced from renewable energy resources may not be specifically delivered to you. However, the renewable energy you purchase will be added to the power grid and will displace incremental power that would have otherwise been produced from traditional generating resources.
