Your local power company offers its customers the opportunity to purchase renewable energy. By paying a little extra every month, you can ensure that some of the energy you use in your home comes from renewable sources like wind or solar power rather than from power plants that account for 40% of carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S. annually.
Local Energy Providers
ConEdison offers wind and hydropower energy through its Clean Energy program for residences and small businesses.
