Be a Renewable Energy Leader
With Muscatine Power and Water’s Choose Green Muscatine, you have the ability to choose a Green-e® Energy Certified* renewable energy program. When you participate in Choose Green Muscatine, you increase the demand for renewable energy. You can single-handedly make a difference in securing a greener future. The best part……it’s very low cost to participate and there are absolutely no upfront costs! For just 1 penny per kWh of usage, you can become a progressive, renewable energy leader and reduce the demand for non-renewable forms of energy.
How it Works
For every 1,000 kWh of renewable energy produced by our South Fork Wind Farm, one Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) is issued to MPW. Each REC is serialized, independently recorded and tracked through the Midwest Renewable Energy Tracking System (M-RETS). To avoid double counting, RECs are “retired” in M-RETS as soon as they are purchased; never to be used again.
Each month, MPW will retire an equivalent number of RECs based on the participation of our customers in the Choose Green Muscatine program. Here’s the cool part… each year, you’ll receive a certificate that indicates the number of RECs retired on your behalf. It’s our way to commemorate your support of a renewable future!

How to Get Started
Choose Green Muscatine is easy! You can buy renewable energy now. Simply complete the enrollment form. Pick the amount of your home’s usage you want covered by renewable energy purchases – your “Green” choice amount. Your Green choice can be as low as 25% or 50% of your usage. or you can fully commit 100% of your usage to be covered by clean, renewable wind energy. Calculate the estimated cost of your Green choice by using our simple online calculator. When you see just how cost effective it is, you’ll agree that it’s easy to go green!
After your enrollment, you’ll receive a welcome letter from MPW confirming your enrollment. After that, we’ll send you a certificate once a year recognizing the annual amount of energy you designated to be covered by renewable energy.
