How can Common Energy offer me lower cost electricity?

Simple.  First, the cost of clean energy in many areas has fallen so rapidly that this electricity now costs less than traditional fossil fuel-based electricity.  Second, because most US states have adopted renewable portfolio standards, they provide financial incentives to promote clean energy.  Common Energy passes this savings on to you!

What is my environmental impact with Common Energy?

You will prevent between 6,000-15,000 pounds of carbon emissions each year, depending on your utility and your electricity usage.  Over the lifetime of a project this equates to preventing 120,000-300,000 pounds of carbon emissions. This is a direct reduction of emissions and pollution in your community!

How much will I save?

Common Energy guarantees you'll save on your electricity bill up to 10%.  For most households, this equates to $10-$15 of savings each month.

faq icon
Am I actually supporting new clean energy?

Yes.  Unlike many companies who simply purchase Renewable Energy Credits, when you sign up with Common Energy you help bring new clean energy projects to the grid.  These projects directly reduce emissions in your community.

Does Common Energy have a referral program?

Yes!  And we love getting help signing up friends and family members for lower cost clean electricity!
