Renewable Choice Program

Manitowoc Public Utilities produces a majority of the electricity used in the city. We purchase the extra power we need from various sources. As a participant in the Your Renewable Choice program, you are directing Manitowoc Public Utilities to purchase the extra power we need from renewable sources only.

  • Help to speed up the process of changing over to renewable sources of electricity.
  • Invest in the future of the “green” energy industry— the more people who make Your Renewable Choice a part of their energy usage, the more power will be generated from renewable sources each month to keep up with our demand for it!
