Cliff is pretty excited. We just got our first statement from Arcadia Power which means that we are officially a Clean Energy Partner - we can claim our building is powered by renewable energy.
I we had our way, we would have solar panels or a couple wind generators on the roof of our building, but that is not something we can do right now. However, we have found the next best thing: partnering with Arcadia Power. They took a look at our electric usage for the last 12 months and then came up with a monthly average to calculate how much extra we would pay for clean energy and then they bill us for that amount - for us it is $10 a month. Bingo - we are now helping to move ahead with clean, renewable energy.
We are paying the difference in cost to have clean energy by matching up the RECs to our energy usage. How cool is that? The best part is that ANYONE can do this. The more of us who do, the more DEMAND there will be for clean energy which will encourage more people to invest in and produce electricity from solar and wind power.
If we can do it, you can do it to. Learn more at Arcadia Power.
Just so you know, this is part of our effort to be green at Chimera.
