CleanChoice Energy, a renewable energy company that provides 100% clean electricity to customers across the country, has launched CleanChoice Energy 100% Wind Plans for New York and Illinois residents and businesses.
The new plans lets residents of those states purchase 100% of their energy from in-state wind projects.
“With this new service, CleanChoice Energy makes it easy to support local clean energy without a big upfront investment or a home construction project — instead they can sign up online and promote local wind in just a few minutes,” said Tom Matzzie, CEO of CleanChoice Energy. Interested New York and Illinois residents and businesses can sign-up for 100% state wind in less than five minutes online.
Supporting local wind helps lower energy costs, encourages local investment, and supports local jobs. The wind industry in New York and Illinois employs a combined 6,000 workers and has contributed nearly $13 billion in investment. A 2012 Illinois Power Agency (IPA) report found that adding wind power to the electric grid reduced wholesale power prices by $176.8 million in the state while also creating jobs and economic growth in the state.
CleanChoice 100% State Wind plans pair the energy homes and businesses use with wind energy through the purchase of renewable energy certificates from wind farms in that state.
