Green Power Program Overview

The New York Power Authority has recently expanded its Green Power Program and is now offering a renewable energy option to all public entities and non-profit schools in New York as well as all customers of the New York Power Authority, including ReCharge NY participants.

The Green Power Program offers a convenient, customizable and cost-effective way for customers to ‘green’ their electricity supply by purchasing renewable energy in the form of Renewable Energy Credits (RECs). For an explanation of RECs, please see our FAQs.

In order to minimize cost and maximize flexibility, NYPA semi-annually collects requests from our customers and competitively procures RECs to meet their needs. Customers interested in participating in the upcoming procurement cycle should submit their request forms by March 31 or September 30.

In addition to competitive pricing and flexible options, Green Power Program customers benefit from NYPA’s deep renewable energy expertise and high level of customer service.
