Green Blocks Program
If you want to make an immediate addition of renewable energy to offset your electricity use and have enough in your budget to spend a little more on your monthly bill, Sangre de Cristo Electric Association’s (SDCEA’s) Green Blocks Program provides you the opportunity to purchase 100-kilowatt-hour blocks of electricity generated from renewable sources to offset your usage without having to make an expensive investment in equipment and installation of rooftop equipment to do so.
As an electric distribution cooperative, SDCEA purchases wholesale power to send out along the lines and infrastructure SDCEA develops and maintains. For an extra 40 cents per month for each block, you will direct SDCEA’s power supplier to purchase additional renewable energy to power and offset a portion, or all, of your electric consumption at your home or business. This option allows you, as a consumer, individual choice to elect to support increased renewable energy use without passing the cost of purchasing that power on to other consumers. There is no limit to the number of blocks you may purchase.
SDCEA has committed to this program and proudly supplies our headquarters in Buena Vista and our warehouse in Westcliffe with 100% green energy offsets.
