Dominion Green Power for My Home


Dominion Green Power® for Your Home

It's easy to match your home’s electricity use with renewable energy when you sign up for Dominion Green Power®.

When you enroll in Dominion Green Power you not only get the guarantee that renewable energy was generated and delivered to the local power pool on your behalf, you can also claim the environmental benefits associated with renewable energy production.

Your monthly investment in Green Power goes towards the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) from wind, solar, and biomass facilities in Virginia and the surrounding region.

The purchase of RECs helps to support future growth and development of new clean energy technologies.

Enrollment Options

There are two Options available for participating in Dominion Green Power:

  • 100% Option: This option allows you to purchase RECs to match your monthly electricity use. This additional cost is calculated by adding an additional $0.013 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity used to your monthly bill amount.
  • Block Option: : This option allows you to purchase RECs in any $2 fixed increment - as much as you wish. Each block guarantees that 154 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of renewable energy is delivered to our power pool.

With either option, the monthly charge for Dominion Green Power is in addition to your monthly electric bill. This extra charge will appear on your bill as "Green Power (Rider G).”

Here's an example of what Green Power looks like on your bill.

You may cancel or change your participation at any time without penalty.

Environmental Benefits

When you purchase RECs through the Dominion Green Power program, you can claim specific environmental benefits associated with the renewable energy you support.

For example, a customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours per month who is enrolled in the 100% Option for one year will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 8 metric tons - the same greenhouse gas reduction provided by removing one and a half cars from the road for one year*.

Alternatively, signing up for $10 per month with the Block Option is equivalent to removing 1.2 cars from the road for a year.
