Why Go Green
In conjunction with Santee Cooper, the state-owned utility that is our source of power, Palmetto Electric is concerned about preserving our environment through safe and reliable energy sources. Our customers can impact the environment in a positive way for just two dimes a day which is equal to the purchase of 2 blocks of Green Power a month at just $6.
Green Power is sold to our residential customers in 100 kilowatt-hour blocks (about 10 percent of a typical household’s monthly energy use). Purchasing 2 blocks per month for a year has the same environmental impact as not driving your vehicle for three months.*
*EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator using 200kWh/month for the state of South Carolina.
Each block of 100 kiloWatt hours will add an extra $3 to your monthly electric bill. You may sign-up for as many blocks as you would like.
$3 per month for 1 Block (100kwh),
$6 per month for 2 Blocks (200kwh),
$9 per month for 3 Blocks (300kwh)
ALL revenues from every block of Green Power you buy will be reinvested into future developments of additional renewable resources or Green Power facilities.
Yes, I believe the growth of Green Power from Santee Cooper and Palmetto Electric will be good for the environment in South Carolina for generations to come.
