Carbon Footprint Calculator

This easy-to-use, comprehensive tool gives a clear picture of your current impact on the climate and suggests actions you can take to reduce your carbon emissions. 

Harness The Power Of Community Choice Energy 

Ensure that the electricity YOU purchase is generated without fossil fuels by switching to Community Choice Energy, one of the most powerful ways to accelerate the transition from fossil fuels to clean energy sources in the electricity sector.

CCEs are local, not-for-profit, public agencies that provide electricity service—and much more—to residents and businesses. Given that they are local, with decision-making meetings open to the public,  CCEs enhance energy democracy by including the communities they serve in decision-making and by generally being more accessible and accountable to the local community.
