Only $3 more each month. That’s all it costs to power a portion of your home with a block of renewable energy—clean and affordable power from natural resources like wind, solar and biogas.
The more renewable energy we all use, the less coal, oil and natural gas we’ll burn. All of which can have a dramatic effect on the air we breathe. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, using just one $3 block each month for a year is like not driving your car for five months. And it only takes two or three blocks of renewable energy to run the average home every month. It adds up to a smaller carbon footprint for you, and a greener world for your kids.
Local Energy, Local Benefits
Of course, renewable energy isn’t just good for the planet. It can also help control our community’s energy costs over the long haul. The money you spend on renewable energy goes toward new, green energy alternatives that will help control energy costs in the future. And because it is produced in the Midwest, renewable energy can increase our energy independence.
Try our Green Power Calculator and learn how the purchase of blocks of renewable energy is equivalent to tons of aluminum recycled, tons of newspaper recycled, tons of glass recycled, barrels of oil not used, tons of coal not used, acres of forest planted and months of not driving a car.
