Are you looking to reduce your carbon footprint? RMLD’s voluntary Renewable Choice program is a great option for customers who wish to support additional renewable energy resources above and beyond RMLD’s annual non-carbon energy targets.

Funds from the Renewable Choice Program will be used to retire additional NEPOOL GIS compliant renewable certificates, specifically Mass Class 1 certificates.

Options and Cost

Customers can choose to participate at one of three levels to bring their monthly electricity usage to 50%, 75%, or 100% renewable/non-carbon.

The monthly Renewable Choice charge is based on the participating customer’s monthly kilowatt hour (kWh) usage. Click here to view the filed rate.

About Renewable Certificates

For each megawatt-hour of electricity produced by a qualified renewable resource, one renewable certificate is created on the New England Power Pool Generation Information System (NEPOOL GIS). The certificate market helps ensure that renewable resources remain competitive in New England by capturing their environmental value or “attributes” as their own unique product, and helps encourage the construction of new renewable resources such as solar. As a Renewable Choice participant, you are contributing to a more sustainable power supply for RMLD and the greater New England power grid.
