20% of carbon emissions come from home energy use. CarbonBetter energy changes that.
Provision CarbonBetter plans reduce the amount of carbon released through home energy use by including 100% carbon offset natural gas and 100% renewable electricity on all energy plans. Plus, all Provision plans plant trees, taking you from carbon neutral to CarbonBetter.
All CarbonBetter plans include electricity and natural gas that is 100% renewable or carbon offset, creating more available clean energy and releasing less carbon.
We plant trees with every CarbonBetter® plan. Trees work to capture excess carbon in the atmosphere and use it to grow and create oxygen.
Carbon is released when we dig up and burn fossil fuels; this creates energy we use at home.
Excess carbon in the atmosphere can warm the planet.
There aren’t enough trees to capture the excess carbon, and it can remain in the atmosphere for hundreds of years.
Simple clean energy plans with zero cancellation fees.
We provide electricity and natural gas supply plans that go beyond carbon neutral, serving homes and businesses in Ohio and Michigan. By partnering with local distribution utilities through Energy Choice programs, we’re able to offer customized clean energy plans that are both affordable and good for the earth.
Provision works in partnership with local distribution utilities to bring clean energy and customized energy supply plans to customers in deregulated states. Find your local utility to check out CarbonBetter plans in your area.
All Provision electricity plans offer 100% renewable electricity. This means that we invest in clean energy projects through renewable energy credits to generate the same amount of electricity you used at home, and we put that on the grid for all to use. In this way, your electricity is considered carbon neutral. But carbon neutral is not enough because it doesn’t address existing carbon in the atmosphere. So in addition to 100% renewable electricity, all Provision plans also plant trees. Trees are carbon-capturing superheroes, taking carbon from the air and using it to grow. The more trees we plant together, the more carbon we capture.
CarbonBetter Natural Gas Plans
All Provision natural gas plans offer 100% carbon-offset natural gas. This means that when you use natural gas at home, Provision invests in carbon-reducing projects on your behalf, proportionate to the amount of carbon-released by your energy use. In this way, your natural gas is considered carbon neutral. But carbon neutral is not enough because it doesn’t address existing carbon in the atmosphere. So in addition to 100% carbon-offset natural gas, all Provision plans also plant trees. Trees are carbon-capturing superheroes, taking carbon from the air and using it to grow. The more trees we plant together, the more carbon we capture.

Frequently Asked Questions About Residential Energy
Provision is the only supplier who offers CarbonBetter energy plans, which go beyond carbon neutral by including 100% renewable electricity or 100% carbon offset natural gas and planting trees. CarbonBetter 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.
CarbonBetter energy plans are exclusive to Provision. These plans work to make a difference in two important ways:
100% renewable electricity or 100% carbon-offset natural gas (depending on availability in your area) included at no additional charge. This works to reduce the amount of carbon released as energy is used at home through the creation of renewable electricity or carbon-capturing efforts.
We plant trees as energy is used. Trees not only capture carbon from the atmosphere through the process of photosynthesis, but they also release oxygen for us to breathe. In addition, the planting and maintenance of trees creates meaningful work, and reforestation can be an important part of creating sustainable food sources and reducing soil erosion in vulnerable areas.
By working to reduce the amount of carbon released by home energy use, and investing in trees that capture carbon from the air and use it to grow, Provision customers are doing something good every time they use energy 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.
Never. We don’t believe in cancellation fees. 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 CarbonBetter electricity plan, we go to work for you by purchasing renewable energy credits (RECs) that match the amount of energy you use. In this way, your use of CarbonBetter electricity generates clean energy that goes onto the power grid for all to use, which neutralizes your personal environmental impact. Your investment in these clean energy projects is critical to putting more and more clean energy on the power grid, so we can kick the dirty stuff off for good. And it doesn’t stop there – CarbonBetter plans also plant trees, which work to capture existing carbon in the air while creating oxygen for us to breathe.
When you start on your Provision CarbonBetter 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 CarbonBetter.
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.
Signing up is easy. Start here by entering your zip code or address. Then choose a CarbonBetter plan that works for you and enter your information. Once you submit your enrollment we’ll take over and handle everything about your switch.
Provision is different because we’re only focused on your CarbonBetter 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 CarbonBetter certified to deliver supply that includes 100% clean energy, plus planting trees.
We carefully select the clean energy projects where we purchase our renewable energy credits (RECs). For example, in Ohio we’ve purchased RECs from the Greenup Hydro Plant, which is a 70.2 megawatt hydroelectric dam located on the Ohio River at the Greenup Locks and Dam. In Texas, we’ve purchased RECs from the Panther Creek Wind Farm, which has 305 wind turbines and generates enough energy to power 135,000 homes. In Indiana, we’ve purchased RECs from IKEA, which powers its stores with solar panels on their massive store rooftops. Together we’ve invested in these clean energy projects and dozens more around the country. This is all possible because our customers have made easy choice of CarbonBetter energy from Provision. We make it easy to make a positive difference every time you use energy at home.
Our CarbonBetter 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.
Provision rates are very competitive among suppliers in your area, but our commitment to making a positive impact is above and beyond. Our CarbonBetter plans are “carbon negative” at no additional cost to you, and this includes 100% clean energy and planting trees on all plans. Our goal is to make CarbonBetter energy affordable and accessible to all because together we can make a massive difference by using our energy for good.
