You probably already know plenty of easy ways to improve energy efficiency in your home. Turn off the light when you leave a room. Take shorter showers. That sort of thing. But you might not know there are simple things you can do today to help move America toward a clean energy future. Take a few moments today to check out these three easy ways you can make a difference:
Support products made with wind power
Speak with your wallet and use products produced using clean energy. Delicious and dedicated to clean energy, the Mars Company that makes M&Ms recently announced they purchased enough power from a wind farm in Texas to run all of their candy factories across the country. Now 53 of the Fortune 500 companies have renewable energy goals.
Help educate others about clean energy on social media
You can become a Wind Energy Super Ambassador through “Electric Nation: Powered by Wind,” a Facebook page for wind supporters. You can easily sign up using your Facebook account and then gain access to interesting quizzes and contests. Or check it out at electricnation.com.
Check if your local electric utility has a clean energy option
Utility clean energy programs let homes and businesses opt to buy clean power through our local electric utilities. Each year the National Renewable Energy Lab releases a “Top Ten” list of such programs. Check online or call your utility company to explore your options.
Thank you for your support of wind energy, today and every day. If you want to take it a step further, join Power of Wind to receive alerts on advocating for wind energy in your home state and beyond.
