Santa Clara Green Power is a program that offers Silicon Valley Power customers the opportunity to get 100% of their electricity from renewable sources at low cost. Residential customers pay an extra 1.5 cents per kWh, which amounts to $7.50 for the average resident who uses 500 kWh a month. Large commercial customers can purchase 100 kWh blocks for $15 per block. Through their participation, subscribers also support the Neighborhood Solar program, which builds solar projects at schools and nonprofits in Santa Clara. Initial projects are at the Haman Elementary School and the Valley Village Retirement Center.
