Make the Switch to Renewable Energy! 

Whether you're a resident, small business or large corporation, all customers that purchase electricity from the City of Loveland can make the switch to clean, renewable energy! When you make the switch, you are supporting an alternative to fossil fuels. GreenSwitch is sold in 100 kilowatt-hour (kWh) blocks. For each block of GreenSwitch energy that you purchase, $2.80 will be added to your monthly utility bill. You can purchase as many GreenSwitch energy blocks as you need to cover your household's usage.

GreenSwitch Source Mix

Currently, 100% of Loveland's renewable energy for GreenSwitch comes from wind power. This mix can change from year to year, and GreenSwitch subscribers are notified of changes to both the energy source mix and pricing prior to those changes going into effect. A complete list of the resources included in the GreenSwitch energy mix can be found in the GreenSwitch Product Content Label.

Calculate How Many Blocks of GreenSwitch Energy You Should Purchase

  1. Add up the amount of electricity you used over the past 12 months and divide by 12.
  2. (Let's say you used 8,625 kWh last year, your monthly average would be 718 kWh.)

     

  3. Then, divide the monthly average by 100 (the number of kWh per GreenSwitch block) to determine how many blocks of renewable energy you should purchase.
  4. (If you used an average of 718 kWh per month, you would need to purchase 7 blocks of GreenSwitch energy to cover your usage. 7 blocks of GreenSwitch would add $19.60 to your monthly bill.)
