GREEN CHOICE PROGRAM
Belmont Light is committed to supporting clean and renewable energy resources. Every Belmont Light customer also has the option of further supporting renewable energy resources through our voluntary Green Choice Program. By electing to participate in Green Choice, you can help sustain and support renewable energy resources for as little as $3 per month added to your electric bill.
Each $3 “block” represents the production of 400 kilowatt-hours of electricity from renewable resources. Customers may elect to purchase as many 300 kilowatt-hour blocks per month as they wish, and may cancel their participation at any time with 30 days notice.

Funds from the Green Choice Program will be used to purchase Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) from Class I qualified renewable energy resources. For each megawatt-hour of electricity produced by a qualified renewable resource, 1 REC is created on the New England Power Pool Generation Information System (NEPOOL GIS). Since it is physically impossible to determine where a unit of electricity comes from or flows to on the grid, the RECs market helps ensure that renewable resources remain competitive in New England by capturing their environmental value or “attributes” as a second product. As a Green Choice participant, you choose to contribute to a more sustainable power supply for New England.
