Join the many Michigan businesses who are already enjoying the value green generationsm provides. Choose the plan that is right for you: 

Green Team Icon

Join GreenTeam to match 100% of your monthly energy use for only a 1 cent premium per kilowatt hour. With this option, your green generationsm contribution fluctuates to exactly match the amount of energy used each month. Businesses that use more than 15,000 kilowatt-hours per month benefit from a reduced cost of only $0.0085 per kilowatt-hour.

Green Blocks Icon

Join GreenBlocks to pick your contribution level each month in increments of only $1.50. With this option, your green generationsm contribution will remain fixed until you choose to change it. If your business commits to 100 or more individual GreenBlocks each month, you will receive a discounted price of $1.275 per block.

 Regardless of which great option you choose, your green generationsm premium will be conveniently added to your monthly Consumers Energy statement as a separate line item.

Both options are premiums to your normal energy-use costs to help offset the cost of producing renewable energy. Initial participation is required for a minimum of 12 months.

LEED certification credits

If you join the Consumers Energy green generationsm program, you also qualify for credits toward your LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. Learn more at the U.S. Green Building Council website.

  • Existing buildings may qualify for credits by participating in green generationsm at a level that represents a minimum of 15% of the building's monthly electric consumption. Additional credits can be earned by increasing the level of commitment in green generationsm.
  • Newly constructed buildings may qualify for credits by entering into a two-year green generationsm participation agreement and subscribing to a level of participation that represents at least 35 percent of the estimated monthly electric consumption.
