Green Switch

Green Switch is green power electricity generated from renewable resources that are more environmentally friendly than some traditional power sources.

Making the Green Switch is as easy as flipping a light switch. You can buy green power in 150-kilowatt-hour blocks. Each block you buy will add $2 to your monthly power bill, and you can buy just one block or as many as you like. The green power you pay for will be added to TVA’s electric system as part of the region’s total power mix.

How will my bill be calculated?

All Tri-State EMC members are eligible to purchase Green Switch from Tri-State EMC on a “first come, first serviced” basis. Tri-State EMC’s Green Switch is available to members in blocks of 150 kWh for an additional fee of $2.00 each month.

Will my rates change over time?

The existing rate structure for your Tri-State EMC Green Switch service is presently fixed and determined by Board action. Many factors control this cost; however we feel it will only change when contract conditions change or new, more costly, renewable resources are added to the program and we must adjust the price to account for the increased price of the new generation.
