RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Dominion Virginia Power says more than 15,000 customers are signed up for its program to support renewable energy.

The Richmond-based utility says the Green Power program offers customers the option to match their home electricity use with renewable energy by either usage or in fixed monthly amounts.

Since the program's inception in 2009, participants have supported more than 480,000 megawatt-hours of renewable energy. Dominion says that has prevented the same amount of carbon dioxide from entering the air as removing 65,000 average cars from the road for one year. The program supported more than 26,000 megawatt-hours from Virginia facilities alone in 2011.

Dominion is the state's largest electric utility with about 2.3 million customers.
