TVA Green Power plans offsets 50 million gallons of gas

TVA's Green Power Switch enters its 10th season with nearly 12,000 residential and more than 500 commercial participants in the voluntary program.

Renewable energy purchases, sold in $4 blocks of 150 kilowatt-hours a month, have offset 448,333 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions, according to TVA. The savings are equal to the amount produced from burning about 1 million barrels of oil or 50 million gallons of gasoline.

"This program has been successful right from the start," TVA Executive Vice President of Customer Relations Ken Breeden said.
