Choose PA Wind: Benefits of Locavore Energy

Choose PA WindHave you made the switch to clean energy yet? It’s an easy solution to buy local and renewable energy: with Choose PA Wind.

In Pennsylvania, we basically have two options of powering our homes. The first is natural gas, which is extracted through hydraulic fracturing (fracking). Supposed job growth or not, the side effects of fracking  in PA are plentiful enough to steer away.  Plus, those ‘secret’ fracking chemicals are toxic and scary enough to steer us away. The other option is a sustainable option: renewable energy, typically wind and/or solar.

Pennsylvania has 24 operating wind farms, which can generate over 3 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean electricity each year and enough to power nearly 330,000 homes. The PA Wind industry has supported 3 to 4,000 local jobs and saved enough greenhouse gas emissions from over 32,000 passenger vehicles each year. This helps clean our air and offset other CO2 emissions.

Unlike the natural gas propaganda, wind is truly an endless supply without all the risk. Prices aren’t as volatile as fossil fuels and secures a greener future for generations to come. Worried about the increasingly common natural disasters impacting wind farms & driving up costs? Wind turbines weren’t ruined by the recent hurricane Sandy.

Choosing PA Wind is catching on not only for homeowners. Businesses & organizations are also making the switch to wind. Local trendsetters such as the Phillies, University of Pennsylvania (Bear Creek Wind Farm), Waste Oil Recyclers, Race Street Café, Camphill Village Kimberton Farms and many other businesses have all purchased Pennsylvania wind energy.

Interested in making the switch to PA Wind? Choose PA Wind provides 12 renewable options. Although purchasing renewable power is best, some providers are  dedicated to 100% green energy versus some providers also supply natural gas as an option. Make the choice best for you and the environment, as rates and options will differ depending on your household location.
