We make it easy for your business to become green powered, which is why we offer a variety of green power tiers designed to fit every business budget. Businesses can participate in Santa Clara Green Power in one of two ways:

  • by purchasing Santa Clara Green Power in multiple one-thousand kilowatt-hour increments called “blocks”, or
  • by purchasing Santa Clara Green Power to match 100% of their electricity use each month.

See the table below to select a level that works best for you. Plus, qualify for additional renewable energy product options and lower prices by making a large purchase.

*Tiers representing Quarter Turbine, Half Turbine, and Full Turbine Champion participants are based on capacity factor assumptions for turbines with 1.5 MW of generating capacity. Typical wind power capacity factors are 20-40%.
