Description

Exercise consumer power and choose an energy supplier from a 100% clean source. They are often very price competitive and are a direct shift away from fossil fuels. This is something your local electricity company does not want you to know, because they do not want to lose you as a customer. Unfortunately that often means that default option you are using is quite polluting. Luckily, many regions now provide the option for clean energy choices.

Tips

• A quick internet search should give you a few options of renewable energy suppliers in your area. If you are not sure how it works give them a call. Clean energy suppliers would love to have you as a customer.

• Once you're happy, recommend them to others to expand your action's impact.

• After your home is powered by clean energy it allows you to start transitioning other parts of your life to clean energy. For example, heating your home electrically instead of with dirty natural gas or using electric vehicles.

• If clean energy isn't available in your area, be sure to let your local politicians know you would like it as an option. Polluting electric companies often try to block competition from cleaner sources.
