Red Prairie Press is now powered by wind!
As of last week, I met one of my most exciting environmental goals to date: Red Prairie Press is now running on 100% wind energy! Very excited about this new achievement, and I can't stress how easy it was to sign up. After consulting friends who've been using the service I chose for a couple years & have seen their energy bills drop, I spent 10 minutes online reviewing the agreement with the wind energy supplier, and that was it. Once you sign up through the website - they contact your service provider (for us: Baltimore Gas & Electric) and set up the contract with them so you don't have to do a thing. Your service provider (BGE) will always be in charge of your powerlines and service, and they use a variety of sources to fuel the grid you're on (so although your payments go entirely toward wind power, your power may come from a variety of sources depending on your location. Sharing the power this way ensures there will never be a lack of power for your business or home if say, the windmill you're paying for in western MD has a windless day.
In short, my point is this: we're getting good rates and supporting clean energy, and we feel pretty darn good about that and thought we'd pass it on.
