We’re making rapid progress toward a cleaner energy future.

Through our EnergyForward resource strategy, 50 percent of our energy now comes from renewable sources, including wind, hydro and solar power. If you want even more clean energy today, we offer several options to choose from.

* Renewable Source is currently 100 percent wind energy. Other renewable energy sources may be a part of the program mix in the future.

** One Renewable Energy Credit is created each time one megawatt-hour of electricity is generated and delivered to the grid. These credits are used to measure the amount of renewable energy produced and to prove that utilities or businesses are meeting their renewable energy goals.
