Join thousands of residential and business customers and "Green Up" your electricity!

What is Green Up?
Green Up is Seattle City Light's voluntary green power program for residential and business customers. By enrolling in Green Up, customers purchase green power for a portion of their electricity use and demonstrate their support for wind power and other new renewable energy projects in the Northwest. Choosing green power reduces our reliance on fossil fuels, improves air quality and helps reduce the growth of climate-warming emissions. The Green Up program is Green-e Energy certified and fulfills LEEDTM Project green power requirements. Through Green Up you may also purchase green power for your organization's event.

How does Green Up work?
When you join Green Up, Seattle City Light buys electricity on your behalf from independent companies that produce
energy from renewable resources in our region. Green Up also has sponsored more than 30 solar demonstration
projects, including high-profile installations at Jefferson Park, Woodland Park Zoo and the Pacific Science Center. By raising demand for green power through purchases and public awareness, Green Up facilitates the development of new clean-energy sources in the Northwest.

How do I sign up?
