Build a Better Energy Grid
* Santanna will purchase Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) from a variety of renewable generation types in the U.S. to match 100% of your electricity consumption.
You can put your credit card away. You’ll continue to pay for your energy the same way you always have directly to your distribution company, with no interruption. You just pick the new plan you want, and we coordinate all of the technical details with the distribution company on your behalf.
No. We don’t replace your distribution company; we work with it on your behalf to change what it delivers. Distribution companies don’t create energy plans, they just have one option. If that doesn’t appeal to you, get an energy expert in your corner like Santanna that offers a variety of energy solutions for every energy lifestyle.
Most people don’t know that energy, like other retail products, comes in different packages. Santanna offers several types of energy plans that your utility (distribution company) simply doesn’t offer, which you can learn more about below.
Choosing Santanna means choosing an energy plan that better fits your energy lifestyle, instead of relying on the one-size solution the distribution company gives you. Don’t get us wrong, distribution companies are great at what they do, getting the energy from point A to point B. Without them, you couldn’t read this! They’re called distribution companies for a reason though, moving energy is their bread and butter. Building energy solutions is a completely different specialty.
That’s where Santanna comes in. What we’re great at is making smart energy decisions about the types of energy plans that fit your needs. We’ve been in business for over 30 years and have serviced over half a million homes across the Midwest, and here is why that should be important to you:
We’ve got purchasing power
Much like any other kind of bulk purchase, we buy wholesale energy in mind-boggling quantities (Seriously, Doc Brown would be impressed) which means we can offer seriously competitive rates that you can lock in for a lot longer than you can with your distribution company.
We’ve got storage
It turns out, winter comes every year! Remember that old story about the ant and the grasshopper? We’re the ant. We work hard all summer long buying and storing natural gas in massive underground tanks for your benefit. We plan ahead so that once winter arrives, your family can keep the heater running without worrying about how much natural gas costs today.
Most people tune out when they hear things like “futures prices on the NYMEX.” Some people get excited about that kind of thing though. We hire those kinds of people, and they work hard every day navigating the hurdles of future energy prices today so that you can have secure energy plans tomorrow.
We build energy plans that we’d want to buy
Santanna is an employee-owned company. We work from the bottom up, not the top down. Meaning, all Santanna employees have a voice in the energy solutions we provide, and because we live in the same neighborhoods that you do, we have the same energy needs that you do. So, our solution is simple. We just create the types of solutions we’d want to buy.
When you choose a Santanna Energy plan, there won’t be any impact to the pipes, wires, or physical delivery process of energy to your home. The pipes and wires to your house are permanent. The energy distribution companies that actually control the delivery of natural gas and electricity to your home are permanent. However, the energy plan that you choose that gets delivered to your home is what you have the power to change.
We understand that the idea of switching your energy supplier can be confusing and that you probably don’t want to “break something.” To that we say, try us for 90-days and see how you like it! Energy isn’t something most people deal with regularly, which is why we want you to have an energy expert like Santanna in your corner.
You can’t actually break anything, and your switch isn’t permanent. If you hate us, we’ll be heartbroken, but we won’t be clingy. We believe everyone should choose an energy plan that fits their lifestyle, even if that means not choosing us.
Compare us to your old supplier, and if you’re not impressed, you can leave us early without any early termination or cancellation fee in the first 90-days.

According to Consumer Affairs, “The average cost to install solar panels in the United States is about $12,000 after federal tax incentives… while a high-priced Tier 1 solar panel system can cost $40,000 or more.” Also noting that, “only about a quarter of the installation costs are actually for the panels. Labor costs, operational costs and additional equipment, such as inverters and control circuitry, make up the rest of the price.”

About Santanna’s 100% Renewable Energy Plan
What is renewable energy?2021-11-09T14:54:03+00:00
Renewable energy refers to any energy source that can be used more than once. Renewable energy sources include wind energy, solar energy, hydropower, biomass, and geothermal energy. They are called renewable because they are naturally replenished in a short period of time. On the other hand, fossil fuels like coal can only be burned once to create energy.
What is a renewable energy certificate (REC)?2021-11-08T18:05:20+00:00
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines a renewable energy certificate (REC) as a tradeable, market-based instrument that represents the legal property rights to the “renewable-ness” — or all non-power attributes — of renewable electricity generation.1
A REC is issued for every megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity generated and delivered to the electric grid from a renewable energy resource. RECs can then be sold and purchased in the renewable electricity market. Energy suppliers like Santanna purchase RECs from different renewable generation owners, and then pass along the benefits to their residential and commercial retail energy customers.
RECs are effectively the currency of the renewable energy market. RECs give you the ability to support renewable energy even if you cannot generate renewable energy at your home or service location. For more information about RECs and how they work, please visit the EPA’s website at: epa.gov.
Do I need special equipment with a renewable energy plan?2022-01-24T15:44:39+00:00
When choosing a renewable energy plan, many people often imagine having to install new equipment or making home renovations. When you purchase renewable energy, you are actually directing power produced from renewable sources to be delivered onto the grid based on your purchase.
Other lifestyle choices can be made, of course, to combat climate change and support renewable energy. Some of these choices may or may not involve purchasing additional equipment or making changes to your property. Installing solar panels on your roof, in order to generate your own renewable electricity on site at your home, is one example.
Choosing a Santanna renewable energy plan, however, does not require buying other products or special equipment. In fact, the only thing you need to do, is sit back and take pride knowing that you’re helping to combat climate change.
How do I know renewable electricity is flowing into my home?2022-01-24T15:44:04+00:00
When you choose a renewable energy plan, it does not mean that the physical properties of the electricity will be sent directly thru the poles and wires into your home. Instead, the renewable electricity is delivered onto the grid on your behalf. The environmental benefits are the same, since you are helping to reduce carbon emissions by supporting the production of renewable electricity – energy that would have otherwise been produced by fossil fuels such as coal or crude oil.
