Green Power Switch®, a renewable energy initiative that offers consumers in the Tennessee Valley a choice in the type of power they buy, is providing the following electricity label to increase public awareness regarding selected environmental impacts of generating and using electricity. Similar to food nutrition labels, electricity labels provide you with information to make informed consumer choices.

You have a choice when you buy electricity. You can choose to buy blocks of power from Green Power Switch® or use electricity generated by the methods listed below.

For each additional $4 that Green Power Switch® participants add to their electric bills, a block of 150 kilowatt-hours of renewable energy, such as solar, wind, and methane gas resources, will be generated and placed on the TVA electric grid.

Green Power Switch® is accredited by the Center for Resource Solutions; the distribution of the electricity label is a requirement of accreditation.
