is energy that is generated from natural resources that are continually
replenished. Sources of renewable energy include the sun, wind, moving water,
and heat. Renewable energy can replace more traditional sources of energy, such
as fossil fuels or nuclear, in four main areas: electricity generation,
water/space heating, motor fuels, and off-grid applications.
provided our customers helpful information on renewable energy solutions and
programs. You can check out our information on renewable energy
sources or Interconnection and Net Energy Metering. You can also contact our Green Energy Advisers

sources can be replenished in a relatively short period of time, are not tied
to volatile foreign energy market conditions, and have less environmental
impact than traditional energy sources. They can reduce the need for
transporting electricity through cables, poles, towers, etc. However, some of
these sources cannot always stay “on,” which can reduce the availability to our
Portfolio Standard (RPS) is a regulation that requires the increased use of
renewable energy. All the areas we serve have regulated standards that require these
goals are met every year. The standards carefully balance the mix of renewable
energy sources and traditionally generated electricity to ensure we can provide
a reliable supply to our customers.
