RENEWABLE ENERGY RIDER

For members interested in utilizing energy from renewable resources for all their needs, Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative now offers electric service fully backed (100%) by Renewable Energy Certificates under the “Rider GT” rate.  This Rider is available, on a voluntary basis, as a “companion rate” to any residential bill for the entire month’s electricity usage and will be implemented for those using the program.

 

          After a member signs up for the electric service backed 100% by Renewable Energy Certificates, the Rider will add an additional charge of $0.015 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) to the Energy Supply line on your monthly bill.  This is a sell-at-cost charge, or straight pass-through cost, with no profit or fee added by your Cooperative - participating members will pay exactly what the Cooperative pays.

 

          For every 1,000 kWh sold under the program, MEC 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)

·         The Criterion Wind Farm in western Maryland (under construction in Garrett County)
