“J: COM Electricity Home Course Green Menu” 100% Truly Renewable Green Electricity Rate Program Available April 1st | J: COM Press Release

“Green Menu” is an electricity rate plan that increases the environmental value of non-fossil certificates*1 designated as renewable energy. “J:COM” allows you to use electricity with “almost zero CO2 emissions*3” at the same rate*2 as the local power company, and protect about 10 square meters of forest per contracted household within a year. plan” can support further environmental protection.

In addition, “J:COM Electric Power” is currently available for customers to view monthly electricity consumption through the smartphone app “MY J:COM”, as well as customers who subscribe to the “Green Menu” in the future. In “MY J:COM”, we will also visualize the customer’s contribution to the environment, such as the CO2 emission reduction from the use of electricity. (Expected to be available in late April)

“J:COM Green Program” uses Forestock Association’s “Forestock Certification System” (http://www.forestock.or.jp) to pay electricity bills to J:COM. This is part of an initiative to support forest conservation activities. Those who use the program to subscribe to the “J:COM Electric Home Course Basic Menu” have been supporting forest conservation activities of approximately 5 square meters per household since sales began in 2016. However, in the “green menu”, the forest protection area is expanded to about 10 square meters per household, and part of the electricity bill will be used more effectively for forest protection.

With the launch of the “Green Menu”, during the period from April 1, 2022 (Friday) to May 31, 2022 (Tuesday), the plan will change from the new/basic menu to the “Green Menu”. We will also be running a campaign to win a Zaku Eco Bag (not for sale) from 2,000 subscribers by lottery.

At J:COM, we have developed “Four Commitments” based on our corporate philosophy and SDGs. We will contribute to the realization of a carbon-free society through the “Green Menu” to fulfill the promise of one of them, “We will achieve an earth-friendly future with green plants.”
