New Wind Energy

Catch the Wind program

Support the use of clean, renewable wind-generated electricity by participating in our Catch the Wind program. Buying two blocks (100 kWh) of wind-generated electricity every month for one year reduces carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to:*

  • 1,289 avoided miles driven by an average gasoline-powered passenger vehicle.
  • Equivalent to avoiding CO2 emissions from charging 63,146 smartphones.
  • Equivalent to avoiding CO2 emissions from the burning of 574 pounds of coal.

*This is with the assumption the customer is enrolled for 12 months. These calculations are based on the Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator provided by the Environmental Protection Agency. All estimates are approximate.

Yes. You can support wind energy regardless of who supplies your electricity. You will receive an Annual Participation Report that verifies your purchase.

It’s easy to sign up online, or you can call 800.994.1314.

 

You can purchase 100 kilowatt-hours or more of wind energy per month. If your electricity consumption averages six hundred kilowatt-hours per month – and you wish to purchase 100% wind energy – you can buy no more than six hundred kilowatt-hours per month.

It's a renewable energy source which means it can never be depleted. Wind Energy is a "green" energy source that also promotes our energy independence.

Call the Public Service Commission toll-free at 866.GRN.POWR (866.476.7697) to receive information about environmentally-friendly energy sources.

We can assure you that the wind energy you purchase is delivered to the New York power grid for statewide distribution, so your purchase makes a real difference.
