Join the Movement

When you sign up for PaloAltoGreen, the City of Palo Alto Utilities (CPAU) buys renewable energy certificates (RECs) from solar power sources to offset your total power use. RECs are one way the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommend supporting renewable energy. These certificates represent proof that specific quantities of electricity were generated from renewable sources, such as solar. The purchases are certified through Green-e Energy, a program of the non-profit Center for Resource Solutions in San Francisco. It is the leading certifier of voluntary renewable energy programs in the United States.

Easy on the pocket
Business customers can enroll and participate by purchasing 1,000 kilowatt hour (kWh) blocks of renewable energy. A business may buy renewable energy to equal 100% of its electricity use, or some portion, in 1,000 kWh increments.
