How to Know If Your Business Is Ready to Go Green

There’s a lot of buzz around renewable energy and a lot of options for small businesses to choose from. AEP Energy’s Renewable Product Plan makes it easy for businesses to choose renewable energy. With this plan, you can match a percentage of your energy usage with national Green-e Energy® certified Renewable Energy Credits (RECs).

Is your business ready to go green? Here are a few signs you might be ready for our Renewable Product Plan:

  • Your business has sustainability goals. If you have environmental or sustainability goals, selecting a green energy plan can be a good way to start or improve your sustainability efforts.
  • You can’t pursue an on-site renewable option. Whether due to space constraints or budget limitations, your business might not be able to invest in large-scale, on-site solar or wind offerings. With our Renewable Product Plan, you can invest in green energy without the extra resources. Your business can claim the environmental attributes and emissions reduced from using RECs. For example, “My business avoided 1,000 lbs. of CO2 greenhouse gas by selecting the Renewable Product Plan!”
  • You’re interested in a fixed rate. Not only does AEP Energy’s Renewable Product Plan allow your business to go green, but it also locks in a fixed energy rate for the duration of your contract. You can secure a fixed rate and feel good about your commitment to the environment. 
  • Your customers are interested in going green, too. More and more consumers are interested in reducing their carbon footprint, and they’re looking for businesses that are doing the same. 

AEP Energy’s Renewable Product Plan makes it easy for businesses to choose renewable energy. If you’re interested in going green, contact our Small Business Energy Consultants at 1-877-648-1936. If you’re already an AEP Energy customer, contact our Account Management team at 1-888-924-7111 to discuss renewal options.

The Renewable Product Plan is Green-e Energy certified and meets the environmental and consumer-protection standards set forth by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions. Learn more at
