Renewable energy from Georgia’s natural resources
Diverse Power Incorporated offers members the opportunity to supply their electric needs with cleaner, renewable energy from Georgia’s natural resources by utilizing biomass as a “green” source of energy. This biomass consists of methane gases and wood waste that are burned in facilities that use the heat from the burning process to generate environmentally friendly electric energy.
In 2005, Diverse Power joined other Georgia electric cooperatives by signing on with Green Power EMC, the first renewable energy program in Georgia, now serving environmentally friendly electricity through its 38 member EMC’s to a large number of Georgians.
Since inception through August, 2010,Green Power EMC and its 38 member EMC’s have generated over 196,899,986 kilowatt-hours of green energy, providing the same environmental benefits as taking 165,359 cars off Georgia’s roads, or planting 235,637 acres in trees.
The environmentally friendly electricity offered by Diverse Power is nationally certified as Green-e Energy. The Product Content Label below is published as a source of information for you, our members, to fulfill one of the criteria for maintaining our certification.
As of right now, all our Green Power energy is being purchased by members who feel the need to help the environment by supporting this program. In the future, as we develop more Green Power supply, you may also have the opportunity to participate.
