Renewable Energy

Member utility staff who are logged in have full access to resources.

Choose Renewable

Member utilities give customers the option of purchasing renewable energy through the Choose Renewable program. For two dollars per block, customers can power a portion of their home with a block of renewable energy—clean and affordable power from natural resources like wind, solar and biogas. It only takes two or three blocks of renewable energy to power the average home every month. It adds up to a smaller carbon footprint and a cleaner world.

Of course, renewable energy isn’t just good for the planet. It can also help control energy costs over the long haul. The money spent on renewable energy goes toward new, green energy alternatives that will help control energy costs in the future. And because it is generated in the Midwest, renewable energy can help increase our energy independence

Renewable Energy Grants for Non-Profits RFP

*Special 2021 Second Round: June 4 – July 2, 2021*

This grant program supports efforts by non-profit entities, such as churches, schools and municipal/government buildings, to install renewable energy (wind, solar PV, etc.) projects to offset their energy use and promote their environmental commitment. WPPI has been involved in the funding of renewable energy projects for over a decade and continues to see increased interest by customers and member utilities. This RFP program has been designed to effectively and responsibly use the revenues from the Choose Renewable program to implement new local renewable energy projects and obtain more Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) to mitigate future carbon impacts. The program supports customer-owned projects without impacting wholesale rates.
