Provision is the only supplier who offers Carbon Better energy plans, which go beyond carbon neutral by including 100% renewable electricity or 100% carbon offset natural gas and planting trees. Carbon Better plans work to reverse the amount of carbon released related to home energy use by making more clean energy available for all through investments in clean energy and carbon offset projects, and by planting trees that capture excess carbon in the air and use it to grow. With Provision you make a positive impact every time you turn on your lights or use natural gas at home.
Switching to Provision is fast and easy, and there are no sign-up fees. Simply choose a plan , submit your information, and we’ll handle your switch from start to finish. You will continue to receive your normal bill from your utility, but Provision’s supply charges will show instead of your prior supplier or utility’s supply charges. We’ll keep you updated on your personal impact on a monthly basis so you can watch it grow as you use your energy for good.
Energy Choice gives you the freedom to choose where you get your home energy supply. By making a choice of energy supplier you can choose a plan based on your preferences, like your desired level of environmental impact, cost, plan length, and more. Energy suppliers like us work in close partnership with local distribution utilities to service mutual customers. When you choose a supplier you will always remain a customer of your utility, but you will also get the benefits that come with the supplier you chose. Energy Choice makes this additional benefit possible.
Your utility will never change when you choose Provision. You will always remain a full-service customer of your local distribution utility when you choose a supplier, and you will not experience any interruption of service. After you submit any enrollment request, you should see Provision as your supplier in 1-2 billing cycles on your normal utility bill. It’s that easy! We work in close partnership with your local utility and we’ll work together to give you the best service possible once your Carbon Better energy starts flowing.

Our customers stick with us because of the impact we make together and the service we offer – and not because we hang high fees over their heads if they want to make a change. In fact, you can change your plan any time you’d like, just give us a call at 1-800-930-5427. We’re here to help.
When you start on your Provision Carbon Better natural gas plan, we go to work for you by purchasing carbon offset credits that match the amount of carbon released by your natural gas use. In this way, you have neutralized the carbon footprint from your natural gas use, and you’ve helped fund projects that work to reduce carbon in the atmosphere. But we don’t stop there – we also plant trees to capture carbon, taking you from carbon neutral to Carbon Better.
We partner with non-profit reforestation organizations that collaborate with the US Forest Services, state and local governments, and private landowners in the US and abroad to identify areas that are ideal for planting and long-term growth. One such partnership is with the Kokrobitey Institute and OKO Forests in Kumasi, Ghana to co-fund the development of a community agroforest in an area adjacent to the Kogyae Strict Nature Reserve. These plantings will not only deliver a lifetime of carbon sequestration, but they also create dignified work and cash crops for local communities. We also partner with the National Forest Foundation, which plants in America’s national forest system, and Green Forests Work, which restores forests on formerly mined lands in Appalachia.
No, you’ll still get your typical combined bill from your local utility. Provision will be listed as your “supply” or “generation” charge. This just means that you have Carbon Better energy supplied by Provision, and it will be in place of your previous energy supply charges. There are no additional fees added for choosing Provision – we will just become your supplier of choice.
Provision is different because we’re only focused on your Carbon Better energy supply: we work hard to maintain affordable pricing options, we partner with the most impactful projects to purchase your credits, and we find the best locations and partners for planting your trees. While we are focused on your energy supply, your utility will always handle delivering your energy supply to you, maintaining the pipes and wires that go to your home, emergency response, and all of your billing. Your utility can also supply your energy, but your utility is not Carbon Better certified to deliver supply that includes 100% clean energy, plus planting trees.
Our Carbon Better Month-to-Month plan is our most popular plan, and it’s really simple: each month you’ll pay the current market rate for your Carbon Better energy supply. Customers love this plan because the unit price of energy each month reflects the actual cost of the supply, whereas our Annual and Unlimited (where available) plans are one set amount per unit or per month for 12 months.
Our Carbon Better Annual plan offers you one rate per unit for your energy supply that will not change for the next 12 months. You won’t feel the effects of any changes in the market on a monthly basis because your rate will not change for the entire term. Our Annual plan is very popular for its price stability and predictable billing that only adjusts when usage increases or decreases with the seasons.
Carbon Better plans go beyond carbon neutral by not only offsetting 100% of your energy usage, but by also planting trees, which are carbon-capturing powerhouses. For each unit of energy you use, we’ll purchase credits on your behalf, which fund projects creating clean energy, in the case of electricity, or projects that are reducing carbon emissions, in the case of natural gas. For every unit of energy you use, you’re doing an equal amount of positive through your investment in these projects. You’re also planting trees as you use energy, which captures carbon already in the atmosphere. We partner with organizations like the National Forest Foundation, Green Forests Work, and the Kokrobitey Institute in partnership OKO Forests to plant trees in the US and abroad.
