This page provides information and resources relating to cost savings, demand-side management practices, and other benefits gained from installing on-site renewables and from purchasing a renewable energy contract.
Benefits of Renewables
On-site renewables can save operating costs, reduce energy demand, and increase organizational resiliency. During peak demand, retail electric providers may charge higher electricity rates; on-site renewables can also help defray these costs.
Another benefit of renewable energy generation is generating energy that produces no greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels and reduces some types of air pollution. It also diversifies energy supply and reduces dependence on imported fuels.
Likewise, purchasing a renewable energy electricity contract reduces an organization's carbon footprint and supports green energy and jobs.
