Record your purchase of green power (solar, wind, small hydropower, biogas, biomass, or geothermal) under your electricity grid meter. When you add each bill, there is a box for “Green Power.”
When you check the "Green Power" box, you will be taken to a screen where you enter the quantity, percentage, source, and the location of the green power. If you don't know the source or location of the green power, it's okay, we'll supply defaults.
You can make this selection for each month/bill. So, if you start purchasing green power in 2017 you do not need a new meter, just start checking the "Green Power" box.
This is referred to as “offsite green power.” For more information, refer to our technical reference on Green Power.
