The Green Block program is an SMPA renewable energy initiative that allows members to purchase renewable energy credits (RECs) to offset their energy consumption. These credits are called Green Blocks and cost $1.00 per block, per month. One block represents 100 kilowatt hours of renewable energy. The average home uses approximately 800 kilowatt hours per month, therefore most members would need eight Green Blocks to offset their total monthly energy consumption. The cost is added to your monthly bill. Members can purchase as many blocks as they wish.


1. LEARN ABOUT YOUR HOME
Every home is different. The Home Energy Assessment provides a comprehensive report outlining opportunities for energy improvements that are specific to your home.

2. HOME SAFETY
Make sure your family is safe. During the assessment, the analyst will complete safety testing to test the air quality of your home. They will test for carbon monoxide and radon (depending on your location).

3. RECEIVE FREE “QUICK FIX” ITEMS
Your analyst may install “quick-fixes” like energy efficient lights, a programmable thermostat, bath or kitchen faucet aerators, low flow showerheads, pipe wrap, or a water heater blanket at no cost to you.

4. QUALIFY FOR REBATES
Many utility or community rebates require an assessment prior to accepting your application for rebate programs.

5. ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Do your part for the environment! Buildings in the United States are responsible for almost 40 percent of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions. Your assessment report will provide information to improve the efficiency of your home, creating a more comfortable, affordable and efficient home.
