Looks like an increase of $15+ per month from what we’re currently paying… my partner assures me that our current provider also sources clean energy, mostly hydroelectric, but I’m not totally sure if that’s “enough”.
My family bought wind power when we lived in Texas. 5 years ago
I’m in New York City and have ConEd as a supplier. It was really simple to change over to green energy, and the rate was cheaper. You get your choice of energy types, so if you like wind energy or hate dams, you can decide between them. Plus in New York state, you don’t have to pay taxes on green energy! I also got a rebate for switching. I have yet to get a new bill, but my neighbor saved 25% off his old bill by switching and buying a new, energy-effcient fridge.
Here’s the link for anyone who gets their power through ConEd6 years ago
I need to chase this up—I think my application fell into the aether! 6 years ago
We switched to this company when we moved into our house 2.5 yrs ago. Our money buys energy from 100% renewable sources. We currently pay £10 a month – I’m pretty certain that this is the least that we have ever paid (although we are quite careful at turning off lights/standbuys etc). Now dabbling with the idea of some solar panels or a small wind turbine. 6 years ago
Now I have to insulate and make the house more efficient. I have a dream of making my house a super efficient energy home and getting my monthly energy bills below $100 for everything. Not sure if that’s possible, but I’d like to try. This may take a few years. 6 years ago
I am glad to see more people interested in this.
Since Al Gore’s movie, I actually now have a couple of neighbors who understand my “old fashioned” lawnmower. Of course, they still use gasoline ones, but at least they are starting to “get it.”
It is actually not possible for me to convert to 100% renewable energy (unless I move), but I buy renewable energy to add to the pool. 6 years ago
My energy hog of a house uses about $140 worth of electricty every other month. I just upped my bill $24 by volunteering to get 100% of my energy from renewable sources. If you live in the Seattle area, you can too with this form.
Next I’m going for the sprinkler rebate for installing a “greener” irrigation system. 6 years ago
I just signed up for 100% participation in Seattle City Light’s Green Up program. The Green Up program gets power from Stateline, the largest wind farm in the country. It’s located near Walla Walla, Washington. Stateline is operated by PPM Energy based in Portland, Oregon, and owned by FPL Energy.

I think this was as easy as filling out this form. I haven’t looked very thoroughly into it, so my money may be going into making more dollar bills for the evil people, but if that’s the case I’ll just cancel later. Now I have to run off. 6 years ago
I’ve just used USwitch:”https://www.uswitch.com” to move over to a supplier of gas and electricity that (supposedly) suits me best. The price on my old (non-green) supplier is going up, so now seemed a good time to move. 6 years ago
Well, my electricity is at least :o)
I highly recommend everyone check this out. Google Green Energy and the name of your state or country. If you have the right to pick you energy supplier odds are one of them will be green. 7 years ago
Got home tonight to find a letter telling me that from October my electricity will be supplied by ConEd Solutions! 75% run-of-the-river hydro and 25% wind power. 7 years ago
But no response yet :o(
In theory it’s simple and the really cool thing is that it will cost less than I’m paying ConEd now.
If I don’t hear anything this week I’ll contact them again. 7 years ago
