NStar Green Rate Hike

I got a notice this week that NStar has applied for a rate hike for NStar Green, the optional program where people pay extra to support energy generation by renewable sources…. NStar markets the program as if 100% of your electricity will be from renewable sources, and I think it’s this approach that turns people off. It all goes into the same grid, so no electricity is “my” electricity. The premium that I pay only makes a difference if NStar is actually buying more renewable energy because of it. Is that the case?
