Green Energy That’s Community-Powered

For over 60 years, HEC has provided customers with reliable energy at low rates, while also working toward a sustainable future. We’ve introduced several free and low-cost programs for our customers that make it easy to increase energy efficiency and reduce your carbon footprint, without affecting rates for the greater community.

We want to highlight a few of our programs that demonstrate our commitment to sustainability, not because we are required to, but because we do what is right for you, our customers. You can learn more about these programs and our other sustainability efforts here.
