Frequently Asked Questions
Green Mountain Energy is the nation’s leading competitive retail provider of cleaner energy and carbon offset solutions. Green Mountain was founded in 1997 with the mission to change the way power is made, and over a decade later we remain 100% committed to this mission. Every single product offered by our company has an environmental benefit.
Since Green Mountain’s inception, our customers have helped avoid more than 19.4 billion pounds of carbon dioxide emissions by choosing renewable energy, which is like taking over 1 million cars off the road for a year. Our customers’ demand has also helped spur the development of over 50 new wind and solar facilities across the nation. Now that’s making a difference!
Green Mountain was one of the first Electric Generation Suppliers (EGSs) to offer Pennsylvania consumers a choice of how their electricity is made, back in 1998 when the energy market opened to competition. The demand of Green Mountain customers in Pennsylvania helped lead to the development of the first utility-scale wind farm in the Eastern U.S., in Somerset County, PA back in 1999.
As of June 2012, Green Mountain has reentered Pennsylvania’s PECO and PPL service territories as an active EGS serving residential and business customers with cleaner energy. We are now, as we were in 1998, an active leader in promoting energy choice at the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission.

Green Mountain is offering Pennsylvania residents the choice of cleaner electricity products for their home, made from renewable sources like wind, water and solar. Did you know that the traditional production of electricity from dirty sources like coal is the largest source of industrial air pollution in the U.S.? By choosing clean Pollution Free™ electricity from Green Mountain, you can help reduce your household’s share of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and help fight climate change. Choosing renewable electricity products also helps encourage the development of new renewable, pollution-free generation facilities in Pennsylvania and nearby states.
