Tax benefit

Although it is an additional cost on top of what your already pay for electricity, your payments for Green Powered (and Community Choice Electricity programs supplied by Green Energy Consumers Alliance) are considered a public good and are 100% federally tax-deductible.

2023 Tax Receipts

If you're a Green Powered (or GreenUp) member, a New England Wind Fund donor, or you are enrolled in certain Community Choice Electricity programs, you make monthly payments (either as part of your electric bill or separate from it, depending on the option you are enrolled in) that we use to purchase Renewable Energy Certificates on your behalf. This adds more renewable energy to the New England electric grid, and is considered to be in the interest of the public good. THANK YOU! 

Your payments for additional renewable energy are federally tax-deductible as charitable contributions if you itemize.
