Why go green?

By choosing green energy, you're shrinking your carbon footprint and supporting renewable energy projects like solar energy, wind power and other renewable and sustainable energy sources that don’t add to greenhouse gas emissions. This helps provide Albertans with a vast and inexhaustible alternative energy supply for many years to come.p>

Conventional electricity is generated at power plants by burning coal (or other fossil fuels). Green electricity is clean, cost effective, non-polluting, sustainable power generated by renewable energy sources like wind, solar and water. These alternative energy sources help to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide and other pollutants.

Our green energy is EcoLogo certified, so you can be assured your choice to go with green energy products is making a difference for the environment. You can feel good about choosing green Alberta energy.
