While we wait for wind turbines to sprout in Lake Erie, there are other ways to kick the coal habit. (1) American Electric Power has a wind option regardless of which utility company provides you electric service. The cost is approximately the same as the cost of dirty energy. Call 1-855-300-7191 and ask for the wind option. If you are a First Energy customer, you may have to pay $25 to make the switch. That’s a small price to pay to support alternative energy and send a message to the utility industry. (2) The national Sierra club is promoting Ethical Electric, which supplies clean energy and will soon be available in our area. Call 1-800-352-3432.
So there’s no longer any excuse for being hooked on fossil fuels. Don’t be an energy recidivist!
