Go Green at Work in Michigan

With Indiana Michigan Power's GoGreen Local Program, you can voluntarily support green energy for less than 1 cent per kilowatt hour (kWh).

You can commit to 10% to 100% of your monthly kWh usage in 10% increments. If you are a typical commercial customer who uses 100,000 kWh per year, here is how it would look if you participated at 10%, 50%, or 100%

  • 10% of your energy use to renewable green energy for just $37.70 per year
  • 50% of your energy use for just $188.50 per year
  • 100% of your energy use for just $377.00 per year

Michigan GoGreen at Work Frequently Asked Questions

In 2023, we generated more than 87% of our energy from emission-free sources, including solar, wind, hydro and the Cook Nuclear Plant, and our energy efficiency programs help reduce customers’ energy use, which also lowers demand for generation of electricity. I&M and our parent company, American Electric Power, aim to achieve net-zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2045.

GoGreen is a voluntary renewable energy program that provides Michigan customers the opportunity to support wind, solar and hydro energy resources at a level beyond the renewable energy you already receive from I&M's generation fleet.

GoGreen includes a simple, on-bill tariff option to support renewable energy certificates (RECs) from energy produced by I&M's existing or contracted renewable resources.

GoGreen is a simple, easy and cost-effective way to connect with your employees, customers and other stakeholders on your commitment to sustainability and renewable energy, especially for I&M customers where installing solar panels or wind turbines at your own operations may not be feasible or cost-effective.

Based on I&M's current state-approved tariff, the RECs you support in Michigan will cost $0.00377/kWh. This rate, while not shown on your monthly bill, is the difference between the GoGreen Local Surcharge rate of $0.01906/kWh less the GoGreen Local credit rate of $0.01529/kWh. This will appear on your monthly bill as two line items.

The table below shows the annual cost for GoGreen Local participation based on a commercial facility's energy use of 100,000 kWh per year across a range of participation options.

GoGreen is a voluntary program, and if you choose to participate, the level of participation is your choice. Participation can be from 10 percent to 100 percent of your monthly kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy use, in increments of 10 percent.

Your support for RECs based on your level of participation will be billed monthly on a per kWh basis as an additional line item on your bill. I&M then manages the administrative REC chain-of-custody documentation activities annually on your behalf.

The RECs in the GoGreen Local program come from I&M’s existing solar, wind, or hydro renewable generation resources.

Beyond demonstrating your organization's commitment to sustainability and renewable energy, the net of administrative fees, will be used to offset the costs of the Power Supply Cost Recovery Rider for all Michigan customers. Also, your support for the RECs directly lowers your organization’s carbon footprint.

No. Due to the nature of the power grid, it is impossible to track which electrons used at your business were generated by any one particular renewable energy generation plant. This is why RECs were created and your RECs legally represent the environmental and renewable energy attributes of each kWh of renewable power we provided to the grid.

To help understand how Renewable Energy Certificates help support green power, see this video from the U.S. EPA.

Commercial and Industrial Customers can Bring Your Own Contract

GoGreen Custom Agreement is available to customers taking service under the Company’s LP and CS-IRP tariffs, or multiple GS and/ or LGS tariff with common ownership under a single parent company that can aggregate multiple accounts to exceed 1,000 kW monthly peak demand over a 12-month average. For businesses that want support renewable energy and meet your company's sustainability/green energy goals can work with I&M to develop a custom solution that meets your needs.

Perhaps your company is interested in partnering with I&M on a new renewable energy resource or seeking creative ways to show your business is going above and beyond to support clean, renewable energy. GoGreen's Custom Agreement option allows an interested business, industry or institutional customer to work with I&M to directly purchase the electrical output and associated environment attributes from a renewable generation resource through a tailored contract.
