Switch to Wind NYC
Another one of our campaigns is “Switch to Wind” to get New York City residents to make the switch to renewable electricity. It’s easy to do and it makes a big difference.
If you are a typical NYC resident, at present only 2% of your electricity comes from renewable sources: the other 98% is from a mixture of oil, gas, coal, hydroelectric and nuclear power.If you live in a house or small/medium apartment building, we suggest that you explore the option of installing solar panels. However, for New Yorkers who live in larger apartment buildings, the most convenient, sustainable choice is to switch to wind energy through Green Power Purchasing. Whether you rent or own your apartment, every New Yorker who pays their own utility bill has the power to choose a clean, renewable energy. Your choice can make a contribution to solving the climate crisis.
Learn more about how you can make the switch to renewable energy today. And LET US KNOW WHEN YOU MAKE THE SWITCH!
