Green Electricity is here!

Anyone can switch their electric service in various LA/Orange County areas to electricity generated from environmentally friendly (and/or friendlier) sources such as wind and solar power.  If an environmentalist really desires to be "a part of the solution rather than a part of the problem" -- walk their talk -- they would switch to green power.

The Loma Prieta Chapter of the Sierra Club has information on their web site showing the pros and cons of the different types of energy available to consumers at http://www.sierraclub.org/chapters/lomaprieta/greenpower/renewabletech.htm .

The Sierra Club publication The Planet   has an article on green electricity as well which cautions the consumer about making a wise green-e choice:  http://www.sierraclub.org/planet/199808/util.html .

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power has announced availability for green power beginning January 1999.  Click here for information on the DWP's reduced electric rates for electric vehicles and proposed recharging stations.

The Green-E web site shows various green power providers -- use caution when shopping by reading the information on the above two linked Sierra Club web sites.  When you visit this web site, be sure to visit the individual company web sites as well -- as some of the services use a percentage of traditional ("system") power as well as renewable, and others use 100% renewable.  See the Green-E faq page for a description of the various renewable energy sources.

Green Mountain Energy Resources appears to be a great choice -- but at this time it seems they are not available in LA/Orange Counties for the most part.   Please contact them as there may be some areas within the Angeles Chapter region that they do cover.
