Overall, our Greenpower customers remain satisfied with the program. The vast majority -- 87 percent of customers -- responded they were either somewhat or very satisfied.
The customers who marked 'not satisfied' indicated that a lack of knowledge about where contributions go as the primary reason. This annual report is one way we are trying to better communicate with you about your Greenpower contribution.
The focus of the survey is to find out your preferences and priorities for how EWEB Greenpower funding is directed. The chart below indicates the programs and initiatives you believe should receive Greenpower funding as well as how you would allocate your individual Greenpower allocation, with a comparison to the 2015 survey results.
