Welcome to the next generation of power — GreenPower!
The clean, renewable energy alternative that powers our future has arrived in South Carolina.
Green Power is electricity generated by renewable resources such as solar, wind, and methane gas from decomposing garbage in select landfills. These resources are replenished naturally and minimize harm to the environment.
Little River Electric Cooperative is offering the Green Power Program to its members in response to an increased interest in renewable energy and concern for the environment.
By voluntarily participating in the Green Power Program, you are taking the initial step to meet and encourage the growing demand for renewable energy. You are also helping to reduce the reliance on limited resources while improving and preserving the environment for future generations.
At this stage of Green Power development, the primary source of renewable energy comes from methane gas located in landfills. In addition, a small part comes from solar and wind energy, all located right here in South Carolina.
How much does Green Power Cost?
Costing less than a dime a day, each 100 kilowatt-hour block will add a mere $3 to your monthly electric bill. One block (100 kWh) is approximately 10 percent of a typical household’s monthly energy use. Even better, there is no equipment to buy, and you won’t have to change your lifestyle one bit. You can sign up for as many blocks as you like.
n 1 Block (100kWh): $3 per month n n 2 Blocks (200kWh): $6 per month n n n 3 Blocks (300kWh): $9 per month

…and make a commitment to our environment—the cost is small but the impact is large.
