Wind Energy

Invest in renewable energy through your cooperative.

You can invest in renewable energy by buying energy in blocks of 100-kWh blocks a month at a special rate of $.20 per block above your regular rate. In partnership with GRE, ECE offers a renewable energy package that has a positive impact on the environment because it reduces the consumption of non-renewable resources. If you commit to buying two blocks of renewable energy each month for one year that equals driving your car 6,000 fewer miles or planting an acre of trees.
