Want to Power Your Home with Clean Energy? Boston Homeowners and Renters Can—in Just 2 Minutes
Climate change isn’t just a trending news topic, it’s a real problem. Luckily, there are also some real solutions. If you already bike instead of drive, dry your clothes outside on a line and just say no to plastic straws, you might want to add one more thing to your green routine: switching to clean electricity.
Even better—that big change can happen quickly and easily. In fact, it can take a mere two minutes. With CleanChoice Energy, Boston area homeowners and renters alike can make the switch to clean electricity and really make a beneficial impact on our environment. All it takes is your electricity account number and a brief online signup.
Currently, your home or apartment is most likely being powered by a mix of mostly dirty energy sources like coal and natural gas. They’re some of the biggest contributors to pollution and climate change.
In fact, the Founder and CEO of CleanChoice energy, Tom Matzzie, originally took action against air pollution after seeing coal’s harmful impact on his industrial Pennsylvania hometown. After installing solar panels on his home, Matzzie decided that choosing clean energy for your house should be much easier than that. So, in 2012, he launched CleanChoice Energy.
Since then, CleanChoice Energy customers have used nearly 4 billion kilowatt-hours of 100% clean, renewable energy. That carbon savings is equivalent to removing more than 800,000 cars from the road, having planted more than 44 million trees, or preventing more than 4.3 billion pounds of coal from being burned.
Unlike dirty energy sources, renewable energy like solar and wind power do not produce carbon dioxide or contribute to air pollution while generating electricity. Ever heard of a carbon footprint? Yours will shrink significantly with clean electricity. It’s one of the most effective ways to reduce the threat of air pollution and safeguard the health of the planet.
Renewable energy is the fastest-growing energy source in the United States and in the world. According to the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, global electricity was generated by 26.2 percent renewable energy in 2018. By 2040, that number is expected to rise to around 45 percent. Clean energy is trending for all the right reasons, so jump in and make the switch!
When you sign up for clean electricity with CleanChoice Energy, your electricity usage will be replenished on the grid with 100% clean, renewable energy from regional wind and solar sources. That means no installation and no structural or lifestyle adjustments at home. It’s easy, and it makes a real difference.
