    Green Mountain offers more than just another choice in energy providers. Beyond providing reliable electricity service at competitive rates, they give consumers the chance to use sun, wind and water for good.

    In 1997, Green Mountain was founded with the mission to change the way power is made.  Over a decade later, they remain 100% committed to this mission. From electricity products made using clean, renewable sources like wind to carbon offset products that help neutralize carbon emissions, every single product offered by Green Mountain Energy has an environmental benefit. This makes Green Mountain the leading competitive retail electricity provider in the nation that's dedicated to cleaner energy – a distinction they're quite proud of!

    Together with their customers, they've made a difference for the environment. Here's how:

    Since our inception, their customers have helped avoid more than 19.4 billion pounds of carbon dioxide emissions. That's like:

  • Taking over 1.7 million cars off the road for a year
