When we say we’re more than just an energy company, what does that really mean? It means that we go the extra mile.
We began in 1997 with a mission in mind — to help change the way power is made. Along the way, we committed to reducing our own corporate carbon footprint, sparking green changes in the communities we serve and tracking the carbon impact of our customers.
Take a closer look at how clean energy is more than just the electricity that keeps your home humming and your business moving — it’s also making our planet a cleaner, greener place to be.
81 billion lbs. of CO2 avoided
Our electricity isn’t just energy — it’s also producing change for our planet. Since 1997, our customers have kept more than 81 billion pounds of carbon dioxide from entering our atmosphere. And we keep watching that number grow.
8.6 million cars off the road
Our customers’ overall avoided carbon dioxide emissions impact across the span of our company’s history equates to taking over 8 million cars off the road for an entire year. Pretty cool, right?
7.8 million households not using any electricity
The amount of carbon dioxide prevented by our customers choosing clean energy over the years is like more than 7 million homes not using any electricity for an entire year — not a single kWh!
25.2 billion lbs. of waste recycled
The carbon dioxide avoided by our customers over our 21+ years in energy has the equivalent impact of recycling more than 25 billion lbs. of waste, rather than sending it to a landfill. That’s quite the feat for clean energy.
With Green Mountain Energy, more than energy means fulfilling our mission to make renewable, clean energy available for homes and businesses — and we have the numbers to prove it. Because when we work toward doing more for our planet today, we create a brighter future for tomorrow.
