We all use energy, there’s no way around it, but did you know that you can reduce your carbon footprint by purchasing green power? Many utility companies are allowing their customers to purchase clean wind-generated electricity for a small additional monthly charge.
To research whether or not you can purchase green power in your state check out the U.S. Department of Energy’s Green Power Network.
While this is a great option, remember that the cleanest energy is the energy you save! Turn off lights when you leave the room, keep the thermostat turned down (especially when you’re sleeping) and unplug appliances that are not in use. Every little bit helps!
