NNEC Offers Renewable Energy Credits
For members interested in seeing the development and expansion of renewable energy sources, NNEC offers a 100% Renewable Energy Attributes Electric Service Rider (Schedule RE-1). This Rider is available on a voluntary basis as a “companion rate” to any residential customer for the entire month’s electricity usage. After a member signs up for the 100% Renewable Energy Attributes Electric Service Rider, an additional charge of $0.015 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) is added to the monthly bill. This is a sell-at-cost charge with no profit or added fee for NNEC.
For every 1,000 kWh sold, NNEC will purchase a Renewable Energy Certificate from Old Dominion Electric Cooperative (ODEC). Renewable Energy Certificates are produced every time a renewable source (windmill, solar array, hydro, etc.) generates 1,000 kWh. At this time all Renewable Energy Credits offered by ODEC will be sourced from one or more of the following:
- the Armenia Mountain Wind Farm in north-central Pennsylvania (Tioga and Bradford counties);
- the Stony Creek Wind Farm in south-western Pennsylvania (Somerset county); and
- the Criterion Wind farm in Western Maryland (under construction in Garrett county).
You can sign up or find out more information by calling NNEC at 800-243-2860 or 804-333-3621. Review the 100% Renewable Energy Attributes Electric Service Rider (Rate Schedule RE-1).
