100% Renewable Electricity Plan Offers.

Green Energy Solutions

Did you know that you can purchase green electricity for your home or business without having to install a wind turbine or solar panels. Our green energy plans include:

  • Green Electricity Supply
  • Community Solar

  • RECs
  • Wind Energy Supply


Inertia Resources offers an array of green electricity options to our customers. Renewable electricity supply works by harnessing energy from renewable sources such as wind, solar, hydroelectric, and geothermal power. These sources generate electricity that is fed onto the electric grid, replacing or reducing the need for power from fossil fuel sources.

When a customer chooses a renewable energy plan, the electric supplier purchases Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) equal to the customer’s electricity usage. Each REC represents one megawatt-hour (MWh) of renewable energy added to the grid. Although the electricity flowing to a consumer’s property isn’t exclusively from renewable sources, the purchase of RECs ensures an equivalent amount of renewable energy is produced and added to the grid. By choosing a renewable energy plan, consumers support the growth of the renewable energy sector, reduce reliance on fossil fuels, and contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Community Solar

Community solar allows businesses to benefit from solar power without installing their own solar panels. Instead, they buy or subscribe to a share of a larger, off-site community solar project.

The electricity generated by this project is fed into the grid, and subscribers receive credits on their electricity bills corresponding to their share of the produced power. This system allows businesses to support renewable energy, reduce energy costs, and avoid the upfront costs and maintenance responsibilities of owning solar panels.

100% Renewable Rate Plans

Commercial businesses can choose 100% renewable electricity plans from our energy suppliers that source all electricity from renewable resources. These suppliers match the businesses’ electricity usage by purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs).

Despite the physical electricity being a mix from various sources, the RECs effectively make the business’s electricity consumption 100% renewable.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a 100% renewable electricity plan?2023-07-21T16:26:44+00:00

A 100% renewable electricity plan is a type of energy contract where all the electricity you purchase is guaranteed to come from renewable sources, such as wind, solar, or hydroelectric power. Despite not requiring solar or wind installations on your property, these plans support the renewable energy sector and help reduce your carbon footprint.

How can I get 100% renewable electricity without installing solar or wind energy systems?2023-07-21T16:26:28+00:00

You can purchase a 100% renewable electricity plan from an energy supplier who procures renewable energy on your behalf. These suppliers buy Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) equivalent to your energy use, effectively offsetting your consumption with energy produced from renewable sources.

What are Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs)?2023-07-21T16:26:10+00:00

RECs are tradable commodities proving that 1 megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity was generated from an eligible renewable energy resource. When you purchase a 100% renewable energy plan, your supplier buys RECs equal to your electricity usage, ensuring the equivalent amount of renewable energy is added to the grid.

Are 100% renewable electricity plans more expensive than traditional energy plans?2023-07-21T16:25:55+00:00

The cost of renewable electricity plans can vary by provider and region. While traditionally they have been more expensive due to the higher costs associated with renewable energy production, prices have been decreasing as technology improves and the demand for renewable energy grows. Some suppliers even offer competitive rates compared to traditional energy plans.

If I sign up for a 100% renewable electricity plan, will my business experience any changes in service reliability?2023-07-21T16:25:34+00:00

No, signing up for a 100% renewable electricity plan does not affect the reliability of your electricity service. Regardless of the source of your electricity, it is delivered through the same grid and maintained by your local utility company. Any power outages or technical issues will be addressed by the utility company just as they would be under a traditional electricity plan.
