Help make our future green
Through Bow Valley Power and in partnership
with Green Alberta Energy, you can help promote
and sustain existing renewable energy facilities.
Simple, Easy & Affordable.
In partnership with Green Alberta Energy, Bow Valley Power is able to offer EcoLogo certified green power to homes and businesses throughout Alberta. Electricity customers have the option to add green to any of our rates, fixed or floating.
The base cost is 1.66 cents/kWh and the percentage you want to green is totally up to you. Simply select the percentage of your electricity that you want to green after you choose your power rate on the sign-up form.
How Does it Work?
The electricity grid is like one huge bath tub with two taps filling it up. One tap is green (representing green power) and the other is grey (representing conventional power). When water pours into the tub, it’s all mixed together, water leaving the tub is a mix of the different types of water used to fill the tub.
When you buy green, you ensure that for each cup of mixed water you remove from the tub, you are putting one cup of green water into the tub to replace what you’ve taken out. As more and more people buy green power, there will be more and more green power sources feeding our grid, and we’ll rely less on conventional power sources which are much more harmful on our environment.
Why Buy Green?
Buying green encourages future development of renewable energy projects. Increasing the demand for green power means more renewable generation being built, which reduces our reliance on conventional (and much dirtier) methods of electricity generation (coal, natural gas...). This has all kinds of benefits - cleaner air, healthier people, less pollution and the list goes on.
