Make a difference through the EnviroWatts® program.
EnviroWatts is an earth-friendly way to support the use of renewable energy and promote research and development of new, renewable energy sources in Ohio.
With each 100-kilowatt hour block of EnviroWatts® you purchase, you can be assured that 100-kilowatt hours of electricity are produced from renewable energy sources. In addition, a portion of your purchase helps fund research and development of new renewable energy sources in Ohio. This effort helps care for our resources and use them wisely. Consolidated Electric Cooperative cares about the environment and renewable energy. That’s one of the reasons why we’re exploring new, earth-friendly energy alternatives.
What renewable energy source is used to produce EnviroWatts®?
Electricity generated for EnviroWatts® is produced from landfill methane gas. As organic waste decays, it produces methane gas. Rather than release this gas into the atmosphere, it is collected and used to generate electricity. This not only helps improve the environment, but also decreases our dependence on fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas and foreign oil.
Take part in the EnviroWatts® program.
You can participate in the EnviroWatts® program for as little as $2 a month. By purchasing just one block of EnviroWatts® each month for a year, you can have the same environmental impact as not driving your car for three months or not using two-and-a-half barrels of oil.
