How do you buy green electricity from a utility?

There are several different ways you can purchase green electricity, but in general, options depend on where you live.

The simplest way to buy green power is directly from your current utility. Many utilities already offer green pricing options — the Department of Energy has a good list.

Other locations offer green marketing options. In this case, you choose your own utility, so you can pick one that provides power from sustainable sources.
