Challenge: Zero Carbon Electric Power for Gold Hill
If you're not sure what plan you are currently on, check your bill, or create an online account and click on "my programs" or follow the link above.
Xcel provides 100% carbon-free wind energy to Wind Source customers. This wind energy is above and beyond the amount of renewable energy Xcel is required to produce by law, so Wind Source customers are increasing the amount of renewable energy Xcel provides.
Xcel has two programs for residential solar customers. In the "net metering" program, the homeowner keeps the Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) they generate, and thus is able to claim the energy they use is carbon-free. In the "solar rewards" program, Xcel buys the RECs and uses them to meet their legally required percentage of renewables in their standard mix. For this challenge, you must switch to "net metering" to be counted towards our town goal of 100% renewable/carbon free electricity generation.
