Green Switch Match Program
TVA's Green Switch Match allows residential and commercial KUB customers the opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint by signing up for 100 percent renewable power for their homes or businesses.
Customers enrolled in Green Switch Match will purchase green power in a quantity matching their monthly electric consumption by adding one cent per kWh to their bills. Electricity is generated from approximately 70 percent solar, 20 percent wind, and 10 percent biogas resources. For the typical residential KUB customer, participation in Green Switch Match can help reduce a customer’s carbon footprint by more than 8,000 lbs of CO2 emissions per year.

Green Switch Program
TVA’s Green Switch program (formerly known as Green Power Switch) gives residential and business customers the option to support renewable energy generation in our region. For each $2 that Green Switch participants add to their electric bills, a block of 200 kilowatt-hours of renewable energy from solar, wind, or biogas resources will be generated and placed on the TVA electric grid.
Green Flex Program
TVA's Green Flex is a new program that allows businesses and industries inside the Tennessee Valley to purchase out-of-Valley wind renewable energy certificates (RECs) to reduce environmental impact. Each REC represents one megawatt-hour (MWh) of renewable energy generated and delivered to the power grid. When you purchase RECs, you are purchasing the environmental attributes associated with the renewable energy generated.
Sign up for Green Flex by calling KUB at 865-524-2911 or learn more by visiting TVA online here.
