With Earth Day 2012 being upon us, we’d like to remind you that you can presently live in the future by way of having your electricity be generated from clean sources of renewable electricity — wind, solar and hydroelectric. All you need to do is sign up online — no new wiring needs to get done.
We’ve been having our electricity sourced 100% from wind power since 2007. Our electricity bill is never outrageous, and by using wind power as our source of electricity we are helping save the environment that we live around. Knowing that we aren’t causing coal to burn into our atmosphere and that nuclear waste is not being generated by watching television or having things frozen in our freezer feels good.
And if having yourself feeling good isn’t enough of a reason to switch to a clean source of electricity, switch to a clean source of electricity so that New York State can finally close the dangerous Indian Point nuclear power plant, which is just a little bit north of NYC. Indian Point is an old, outdated source of electricity that has never been safe. As long as Indian Point remains active, the risk of a terrible accidental death is higher to everyone within 80 miles of it — read all about how you can help close Indian Point over on Riverkeeper.

We’d like to quote our post from last year… ahem… “don’t be a douche, use wind power!”
