Here’s How You Can Power Your PA, NJ, or DE Home with Clean Energy—in Just 2 Minutes
By now, most people have caught on to the fact that we need to take better care of our Earth, and they’re taking important steps to do their part, from using reusable bags in the grocery store to composting in their yards to buying electric cars. Still, there’s one more easy choice renters and homeowners can make to help protect the environment: switch to clean energy.
Companies like CleanChoice Energy are enabling area residents to switch to clean energy and make their home more eco-friendly—and the sign-up process takes just two minutes.
Currently, your home or apartment is most likely being powered by a mix of mostly non-renewable sources like coal and natural gas. Both are 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-burning’s harmful impact on his industrial Pennsylvania community. After installing solar panels on his home, Matzzie decided that making the switch to clean energy should be much easier than that. Thus, in 2012, CleanChoice Energy began.
Since then, CleanChoice Energy customers have used nearly 4 billion kilowatt-hours of 100% clean, renewable energy. That carbon savings is equivalent to having planted more than 44 million trees, taking more than 800,000 cars off the road, 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 adjustments to your house. It’s an easy way to protect the environment from the comfort of your home.
