Virginia Green Pricing

In Virginia, customers have the opportunity to purchase blocks of green energy. Each block is equivalent to 100 kilowatt-hours of renewable electricity.

With this Green Pricing Option, you encourage the generation of renewable energy through the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates, or RECs. RECs are created whenever a renewable energy generator makes power from renewable resources. By purchasing these Renewable Energy Certificates, you encourage and help sustain renewable power.

Residential customers may elect to purchase a minimum of 1 block at a cost of $1.50 for each block. For example, if a customer purchases two blocks of green energy, that customer's bill would increase by $3.00 each month. Virginia customers may also elect to purchase all of their power using the green pricing option.

The typical residential customer uses an average of 1,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity a month (check your usage here), so purchasing 10 blocks of green energy would match that usage.

Each green energy block will add $1.50 to your bill each month, as long as you participate in the program. The cost to purchase green energy blocks is in addition to your regular monthly electric bill, and will be reflected as a separate line item on the bill.

Participating in Appalachian Power's green pricing option affords customers the opportunity to make a positive environmental impact in the region by helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, expand America's renewable energy resources and provide support for the creation of green jobs nationwide.
