Power your home or business with up to 100% renewable energy.
Purchasing renewable energy from your local electric cooperative, Butte Electric, has never been easier.
The electricity you receive will still be the same reliable, affordable energy you have always received from Butte Electric but, by participating in this program, you will be supporting current and future renewable projects.
We make it easy
Using renewable energy has never been easier. You will be billed monthly based on the kWhs used. The additional charge will appear on your normal monthly electric statement.
You won’t need any special equipment either. Butte Electric Cooperative will continue to fulfill all your electric needs while you can enjoy the benefits of renewable energy.
How much does it cost?
$2 per MWh.
“At SRAM we believe in the power of Bicycles,” says Casey Bergstrom, SRAM Sustainability Site Leader for Spearfish. “The REC program that Butte Electric offers is an easy step in the right direction for us to ensure that future generations can enjoy cycling as much as we do today.”
For your Home
With the REC program, you can reduce your family's footprint at home without having to install solar panels or other renewable energy systems.
On average, a home in our service territory uses 800 kWh of energy per month. Participating in the REC program at 100% would add $1.60 to your monthly bill.
For your Business
Add value to your products or services by purchasing REC's for your business. Not only will you be showcasing your support for renewable energy sources, but you'll also be promoting future regional renewable projects.
For smaller businesses, the average cost to power your operation with 100% renewable energy would be $2.80 a month for 1400 kWh. For larger businesses, the average cost to power your operation with 100% renewable energy would be $30 a month for 15,000 kWh.
