Clean Energy

From the way I blog about it, you would think my impending move is halfway across the world, not just the other side of a single wall. Regardless, its been occupying my time and thoughts. Since the roommate who moved out had all the utilities in her name, I get the joy of transferring them to mine. Luckily, a couple guys with Green Mountain Energy had a booth set up outside my grocery store recently (they also hang out at the flea market) and explained their mission. As a consumer, you have the right to choose where your energy comes from. Most power companies in the US provide electricity made from polluting materials like coal. You can elect to receive your electricity from clean sources such at wind or hydro power. The service is the same and may only cost a few more dollars each month. I signed up on the spot, so hopefully 3F will soon be doing our part! Please see if your power company offers a similar option. Plus, Green Mountain partners with the NYC Parks Department's Million Trees campaign and planted 2 trees in our honor for making the switch! What's not to love?!
