CCEJ to sign up participants for Clean Energy Options

Jul 27th, 2010 | By | Category: Business, Energy Conservation, Environmental Justice

Connecticut Coalition for Environmental Justice is signing up Hartford residents to take part in Clean Energy Options, a voluntary program to support clean energy.

Through Clean Energy Options, participants purchase clean energy from one of two providers by paying a small charge on their regular CL&P monthly utility bill. The charge is based on the amount of electricity a household uses in a given month. For instance, a household that pays $100 per month for electricity would pay about $5 extra for clean energy.

Options participants choose either Community Energy or Sterling Planet as their energy provider. Each provider develops clean energy through a mix of hydroelectric and wind —more—
power.

Over 21,000 Connecticut residents have chosen to sign onto Clean Energy Options since the program started.

If you are a Hartford residents that would like to sign up for the Options program or learn more, please call CCEJ at 860-548-1133 and ask for Dawn Simonsen.
