2016 Program Details

An easy way you can support renewable energy without installing your own renewable system is by signing up for Buck-A-Block. For as little as $1 per month above and beyond your normal rates, your voluntary participation helps build a market for renewable energy and purchases Renewable Energy Credits (RECs). Avista does not profit from this program. Buck-A-Block energy is in addition to electricity Avista buys or generates to serve customers. Each $1 block purchased provides 300 kWh of RECs from these renewable sources. Learn more. Sign up.
