Back to Our Roots: Celebrating 18 Years

It’s been 18 years since we first set forth on our mission to change the way power is made. We’ve seen our industry transform over the years. When we got started, only 2 percent of the nation’s total electricity production came from renewable resources. In 2014, renewables accounted for up to 13.2 percent of the nation’s total electricity production. Green Mountain has played an integral part in this contribution, and we wouldn’t be where we are today without our customers and supporters of renewable energy!

Watch this short clip to learn about our origins and evolution from a small town in Vermont to the nation’s longest-serving renewable energy retailer.

We’re proud of our amazing community of renewable energy enthusiasts. Our customer impact is astounding — together, we have avoided 37.7 billion pounds of CO2. More than 75 new solar and renewable energy projects have also been donated to nonprofits by the Green Mountain Energy Sun Club® program.  Every day, we’re joined by more people who decide to help make a difference in the world by taking one simple, easy step — to support renewable energy as a Green Mountain customer.  We still think that’s pretty cool.
