Green pricing

Many utilities around the nation include hydroelectricity in their green pricing programs- aimed at Green Pricing promoting renewable energy sources. While HRC supports green pricing programs in principle, we do not agree with including damaging hydropower projects.

HRC recommends that only facilities certified by LIHI (or an equivalent program) be included in green-pricing programs. We also call for greater transparency in the program so that customers know that the energy source they are supporting is not damaging to the environment.
