Figures reflect EBCE’s actual power mix from 2021 (most recently published). In accordance with EBCE's goal of providing 100% carbon-free electricity by 2030, we forecast that the Bright Choice power mix will be 50% from renewable energy sources in 2022 and 54% in 2023. Historic power mix is published annually each summer for the preceding year.

*Based on an average E-TOU-C (Time-of-Use) customer using 365 kWh/month. The rate components do not sum exactly to the Total due to rounding.
