BP Demonstrates Corporate Responsibility

BP Oil, Inc., is putting green power to work to create a cleaner, greener community for their customers and neighbors. At the same time, BP is also helping those in need pay their electric bills by participating in Murfreesboro Electric Department’s Green Power Switch® and Magic Dollar programs.

“The City of Murfreesboro would like to commend BP for supporting our local community and our environment,” said Murfreesboro Mayor Tommy Bragg. The Magic Dollar Program helps to pay for the electricity needs of Murfreesboro neighbors who, for one reason or another, are having temporary financial difficulties. MED customers can participate in this program by having only one dollar, or any amount they choose, added to their electric bill each month. The money received is forwarded to Community Helpers of Rutherford County for allocation to qualifying recipients.

“ We are proud to be a part of Green Power Switch and the Magic Dollar Program because both naturally align with BP’s mission of managing environmental and social impacts and improving performance,” said Larry Dunn, company account executive for BP.

BP is also working to reduce its own emissions as well as developing a range of cleaner energies for its customers. To support this, BP is researching, investing and building a renewable material and alternative energy business with a focus on solar, wind and hydrogen. To find out more about BP, visit
