Q&A: Are you willing to pay an extra 30-40% on your electric bill if it’s 100% renewable energy?

Question by james: Are you willing to pay an extra 30-40% on your electric bill if it’s 100% renewable energy?
I am moving to Dallas, and in Dallas they have like 20 different electric companies and some offer 100% renewable energy such as Green Mountain. I come to the conclusion that the cost is about 30-40% more than ones who don’t use renewable energy. Do you think paying the difference is worth it?

I don’t know if I’d do that, 40% if kind of steep. It shouldn’t be an all or nothing thing though; ask the company if you can just pay to have like 25% or so come from renewables. That’s what I do.
