Green Power Option
IPL's Green Power Option allows you to specify an amount equal to 100%, 50% or 25%* of your monthly electricity use to be generated by this environmentally friendly, renewable resource.
If you choose to enroll in the Green Power Option, you will pay a small premium in addition to IPL’s standard, regulated rate. This premium reflects IPL’s cost to purchase the renewable energy. The premium may vary depending upon the purchases made. The current Green Power premium is only $0.001900 per kilowatt-hour and represents renewable energy purchased from Midwestern wind farms. At this premium, a typical residential customer using 1000 kilowatt-hours in a month and enrolled at the 100% level would pay an additional $1.90 on their IPL electric bill.
Green-e Energy certifies that IPL's Green Power Option meets the minimum environmental and consumer protection standards established by the non-profit Center for Resource Solutions. For more information on Green-e Energy certification requirements, log on to www.green-e.org.
The Green Power Option is available to both residential and commercial/industrial IPL customers. Commercial and industrial customers should call the IPL Business Call Center at 317.261.8444 for additional information on the premium or to enroll in Green Power.
*Note: Business customers can also enroll at the 10% level.
