Powering your bottom line.

A Business Model that’s a Win-Win

At SDCP, we feel pretty sure that you’d want to reduce your carbon footprint if it didn’t hurt your bottom line. Showing environmental leadership will help your customers see that you put people first, which can go far to improve your business. That’s why our PowerOn service level is a great choice for business owners. You can commit to cleaner energy, set a great example, and not have to worry about breaking the bank. Now there’s a business solution that’s future-focused.

What it Buys You

If you’ve explored energy efficiency methods to reduce the overall amount of electricity required to power your business, you know that most of these require an investment up front. All of them can produce big energy-savings payoffs in the long run, but the timing has to be right for it to make business sense.

If now is not the ideal time for you to invest in energy efficiency measures, you can choose SDCP’s PowerOn as a perfect, no-additional-cost alternative. Our automatic enrollment service level is 50% renewable, 5% greenhouse gas free, and a completely affordable choice for cleaner energy for your business—whether it’s large, small, or mid-sized.

Go Even Greener

If you’re ready to make just a small investment, consider upgrading to our premium electricity service level, Power100. This 100% renewable service costs less than a penny more per kWh, but it gives you a powerful marketing opportunity with your customer base. Show your customers that you share their values of good health and environmental justice, and you’ll earn their respect and support.
