In March, most residential and small commercial customers of Liberty Utilities will receive a letter announcing their access to Lebanon Community Power’s program to purchase electricity at the most competitive rates. Customers will be automatically enrolled in Lebanon Community Power's program for a lower rate in April (if not already purchasing power from a competitive broker). If a customer would like to opt out or opt "up", they will need to take action by going to the website referenced in the letter.
Lebanon Community Power will, in March, offer greener power options.
The Granite Basic rate will provide power with the 23.4% legal minimum renewable component, the same as Liberty Utilities provides now. Customers will be enrolled at that lowest rate unless they take action to opt for Granite Plus, with 33% renewable power, Clean 50, or Clean 100. If customers can afford to do so, opting "up" for greener power can reduce or even eliminate coal and gas from your electric supply. We won’t know until March what the upcharge will be, but It could be just pennies per kilowatt hour. It will offer a very cost-effective way of supporting sustainability for your household or business, and for the City as a whole.
Buying Clean 100 power would be the equivalent of installing solar panels for a mere fraction of the cost. For the average household, buying Clean 100 would save, in a year, about 25% of what you would save by buying an electric car, again at way less cost.
Prepare to Opt "up" in March!
