Black Hills Energy may offer a way to offset your emissions

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Black Hills Energy hopes to begin a new emissions offset program that it says is the first of its kind in the state.

Customers who sign up could buy carbon offsets and renewable natural gas attributes for as little as $5 a month to reduce their carbon footprint.

“We know that our customers are looking for options and choices when it comes to their energy use,” spokeswoman Brandy Johnson said. “So the benefit is for customers who have said they want to participate, they’ll be able to sign up for this program and then offset the emissions associated with heating their home or small business.”

The company said 56% of its customers are interested in sustainable energy.

If the program is approved by the Public Service Commission, it will start in January.
