Turn Your Household Green for Very Little Green. I know I have made the choice to use products that are environmentally friendly. I want to leave the world the way I found it by reducing my footprint. It is my duty and responsibility as a parent.
The first thought I had was what is renewable energy, clean electricity and carbon offsets, oh my! What does it all mean? And can the decisions I make in my household really make a difference?
Did you know?
The average household emits about 8 tons of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) each year, that’s about 900 kilowatt-hours of electricity usage a month. Energy-related CO2 emissions account for more than 80 percent of greenhouse gas emission.
Almost everything we do in our daily lives has an environmental impact– from driving our cars, flying on an airplane and even watching TV. The generation of electricity produces more CO2 emissions than any other activity in the United States. These emissions can lead to smog, acid rain and increase the risk of climate change.
How can I make a difference?
Buy Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs)! RECs are an easy* and affordable way to tap into renewable energy. CurrentChoice offers a low-cost solution to homeowners and apartment dwellers that would like to “offset” the CO2 emissions generated from the electricity they use for everyday purposes. RECs sold by CurrentChoice provide you an assurance that you are reducing the environmental impact of your electricity use.
Visit Current Choice.com to learn more about RECS and our low introductory rates.
*Oh, by the way- you do not need to change your electricity supplier in order to purchase RECs. You will continue to receive your electricity and your bill from your current electricity supplier.
Why buy RECs?
Every single REC you buy helps to protect our environment and America’s energy future by investing in clean renewable energy sources that don’t run out. Buying RECs directly increases investment in clean, green energy sources – like wind farms and solar installations that reduce air pollution and do not emit ANY greenhouse gases like CO2 reducing the amount of electricity that has to be generated from polluting fossil fuels. The more investment in renewable energy, the fewer air polluting generation facilities will be built.
And the beauty of a REC is that it’s not limited to any particular region or part of the country. Everyone can participate. If you live in a part of the country that doesn’t offer actual renewable electricity or the plan that is offered is too expensive, do not fret. You can still compensate for your environmental impact and electricity usage through the purchase of renewable energy credits from CurrentChoice. You can consider REC a coupon for clean air for now and in the future.
With our current economy and the effects of global warming, it’s high time for us to care about the energy we use. With Current Choice we can support U.S. wind power for as little as 16 cents per day.
Are you a hero? BUY your $.16 REC credit per day from CurrentChoice and you would be saving the world!
