As a part of Sawnee EMC’s on-going commitment to help preserve and protect our environment, we are proud to offer alternative sources of environmentally friendly energy. Today, these alternative sources of energy are commonly referred to as “GreenPower". By utilizing these natural methods, as well as the bi-product methods, we are able to lessen the impact that conventional means of producing electricity has on the environment. However, producing electricity by utilizing the green methods mentioned above is more expensive than conventional methods such as nuclear, coal or natural gas.
What Does it Mean to be Green-e Energy Certified?

Green-e Energy Certified is the nation's leading independent consumer protection program for the sale of renewable energy and greenhouse gas reductions in the retail market.
