In recent years, it’s been hard to ignore the global impacts of climate change and the effects that extreme hurricanes, wildfires, and heat waves have had on our planet. And ever since Hurricane Ida struck New York last year, causing widespread flooding and destruction across the region, taking action to help our planet has never felt more urgent.
Many of us have been trying to take more eco-friendly actions in recent years, such as recycling, eating less meat, or driving electric cars. But taking action to fight climate change can often feel overwhelming.
Luckily, there’s an easy (and impactful) way you can help fight climate change today: switching to 100% clean and renewable energy for your home.
Right now, the power that comes to your home is likely generated from a mix of mostly non-renewable sources like gas and coal, which contribute to climate change and pollute our environment. Unfortunately, this means that the electricity you use in your home plays a big role in your personal impact on the environment—but it doesn’t have to.
Unlike dirty fossil fuels, clean and renewable energy sources such as solar and wind energy do not produce carbon dioxide while generating electricity. Clean energy can lead to cleaner air and can help reduce the risks of severe climate change—ensuring a healthier future for us all.
By switching your electricity supplier to CleanChoice Energy, you can ensure all the energy you use in your home is replenished on the grid with 100% clean energy from regional solar and wind farms, instead of dirty fossil fuels. It’s a quick and easy way to significantly reduce your impact on the environment. No service calls or installations are needed, and your utility will still maintain your lines and provide your bill—you’ll simply see a line on your utility bill indicating your “Supplier” is CleanChoice Energy.
We use energy every day to power our homes, and it’s essential to use the cleanest energy sources possible to reduce the long-term effects of climate change. With CleanChoice Energy, every time you turn on the lights or adjust the thermostat, you’ll have the peace of mind that you’re doing so with clean, pollution-free energy.
Switching to clean energy for your home is one of the biggest impacts you can take to reduce carbon air pollution. By using 100% clean energy instead of dirty fossil fuels, you’ll have a major positive impact on the environment. In fact, CleanChoice Energy customers have collectively had the same environmental impact as planting more than 75 million trees, removing nearly one million cars from the road, or preventing more than 5 billion pounds of coal from being burned!
Every single household that switches to renewable energy makes a difference and contributes to our collective impact. When more people choose wind and solar energy, the renewable energy industry grows, leading to a healthier planet. By choosing 100% wind and solar for your home with CleanChoice Energy, you can help increase demand for cleaner energy sources—paving the way for our country to become less reliant on fossil fuels. It’s a simple way you can support the renewable energy industry—without having to install solar panels on your roof.

Signing up only takes 2 minutes, yet it has a lasting impact on the planet.
