Green Power Partnership
Some commercial GreenChoice subscribers qualify for the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Green Power Partnership Program.
The Green Power Partnership is a voluntary program. It encourages organizations to buy green power to reduce the environmental impacts associated with purchased electricity use.
Green Power Partners must meet EPA standards of supplying a percentage of their total energy use with green energy. Austin Energy’s GreenChoice Program has 39 Green Power Partners; including 22 at 100% of their energy purchases.
Green Power Partners benefit from the use of green power and support the development of new, renewable energy in the United States.
Other Green Power Partnership benefits include:
- National recognition as an environmental leader
- Positive attention in our local community
- Differentiation of organizations and brands from the competition
- Increased organizational competitiveness through sustainable management practices
