Green Mountain Power Unveils 'Carbon Neutral' Product

April 2007 - Green Mountain Power, an electric utility company serving one-quarter of the State of Vermont's population, announced a new program that provides its customers with a way to neutralize their carbon footprints through renewable power and home heating and driving offsets. Simultaneously, the company announced that it is now carbon neutral in its operations, which includes its offices, facilities, trucks and all business travel.

Through the Choose2BGreen program, customers can choose to sign up for Greener GMP, CoolHome, or CoolDriver, or all three. Greener GMP offers residential and small commercial customers the choice to have 25%, 50%, or 100% of their monthly electricity use sourced from New England-based renewable energy projects at a premium of about 3¢/kWh. CoolHome and CoolDriver are carbon offset products supplied by NativeEnergy, which uses the revenues to finance the development of renewable energy resources in Vermont and the Midwest.
