While renewable energy is certainly good for the planet, it also has real benefits locally by helping control our community’s energy costs over the long term. And many opinion surveys show that consumers are more likely to buy products and services from companies who care about the environment. An investment in renewable energy makes a lasting, positive impression across the community and with your customers.
Why Choose Renewable?
It’s Clean. The more renewable energy we use, the less coal and natural gas we’ll burn which can have a dramatic effect on the air we breathe. In fact, using just one $2 block of renewable energy each month for a year is similar to the reduction in carbon dioxide as not driving your car for five months.
It’s Sustainable. Wind, biogas and solar will never run out—something that’s simply not true of conventional resources. And because it's generated right here in the Midwest, renewable energy can help increase our energy independence.
It’s Good for Business. Renewable energy isn’t just good for your organization’s image. A large majority of consumers say they’re willing to pay more for products from companies that are committed to a positive environmental impact.
