Often characterized as Green Energy, our Clean Energy supply is generated from clean, renewable wind, hydro, and other renewable generation sources. Many resources, both big and small, are scattered across the nation providing for the ever-increasing call for clean energy technology. These technologies, while being extremely environmentally friendly, do cost slightly more than standard mass generation or fossil fuel technologies. With our Clean Energy Supply product, we've created a blend of wind and hydro generated electricity and made it affordable. We've also made it available at multiple levels to choose the environmentally conscious product that meets your monthly budget. Clean Energy is now available at levels of 50% or 100% of your annual supply needs.
