CleanChoice Energy plans to become the first U.S. company to generate and sell only 100% renewable energy to consumers. Here’s how they’re making it easy for consumers to access clean energy.
Tackling the climate crisis is one of the most important challenges of our lifetime for businesses, policymakers, and consumers alike. And one of the best tools we have at our disposal is clean, renewable energy from sources like wind and solar.
Shifting towards cleaner energy sources is a popular concept. The majority of Americans want clean energy: 84%1 of U.S. adults support expanding solar farms.
Despite this, only a small percentage of U.S. homeowners (8%) have actually put solar panels on their roof. This can be for a variety of reasons: if their roof is shaded, they don’t have the capital for the upfront costs, or they just don’t have the time and energy for a project of that magnitude, rooftop solar can be a cumbersome or inaccessible option.
The massive discrepancy between the amount of people who want access to clean energy and those who have been able to install solar panels makes it clear: the U.S. needs a green alternative to rooftop solar.
Luckily, CleanChoice Energy has a solution that can fill that gap for the majority of people who want cleaner energy but haven’t taken action.
How a unique business model is filling this need for Americans
One company has made it their mission to make climate solutions—specifically accessing clean energy—easy.
By offering clean energy solutions that are incredibly easy for both homeowners and renters across the country to take advantage of—with no installations and a sign-up process that only takes a few minutes—CleanChoice Energy fills this dire need for simple, accessible climate solutions.
“Our customers rely on us to bring them the best quality clean energy, designed to fit their busy lifestyles—and the satisfaction of doing something good for the world,” said Zoë Gamble Hanes, President of CleanChoice Energy. “We do the hard work behind the scenes so you can spend more time doing the things you love.”
The next step forward towards a solar-powered future
Since 2012, CleanChoice Energy has been providing its easy-to-access, clean energy solutions to consumers.
Now, more than 10 years after its founding, CleanChoice is making history and revolutionizing the renewable energy industry: CleanChoice Energy plans to become the first U.S. company to generate and sell only 100% renewable energy to consumers.
With plans to build and own their own solar farms, and supply the energy generated by those farms to customers, CleanChoice Energy is committed to a future in which residential customers have access to high quality and easy-to-access clean energy.
“We’re thrilled and honored to be the first company in the U.S. with a vision to operate at both ends of the clean energy value chain by owning solar generation assets and selling renewable energy to customers in multiple competitive markets across the U.S.,” said Gamble Hanes. “We are working to increase consumer access to solar energy and plan to build more solar farms across the country.”
Because of this new approach to clean energy, CleanChoice Energy will be actively greening the grid by developing new solar farms. “In the future, customers will be able to see the impact of the bill they pay every month as we bring these farms online to displace fossil fuels,” said Gamble Hanes.
How CleanChoice Energy puts you in control of your fuel mix
Right now, only 8% of the U.S. energy mix comes from wind and solar. But CleanChoice Energy supplies customers with 100% clean wind and solar energy. This model is huge for our planet, as the future of a clean energy grid is critical to slowing the impact of climate change.
The positive environmental impact CleanChoice Energy customers make
Choosing wind and solar energy through CleanChoice Energy is one of the most impactful ways consumers can make a difference in the fight against climate change. Since its founding in 2012, CleanChoice Energy customers have used more than 8.3 billion kWh of clean energy. That has an environmental impact equivalent to:
- 1.3 million cars off the road; or
- 7 million acres of US forests preserved for one year; or
- 6.6 billion lbs of coal not burned.
How easy it is to make a difference with CleanChoice Energy
Not only is choosing clean energy one of the most impactful steps consumers can take to help protect our environment—it’s also one of the easiest.
Signing up with CleanChoice Energy takes just 2 minutes. There are no upfront costs, no installations, and no cancellation fees. You’ll continue to use electricity exactly as you normally would, and your electric utility will still send you your bill, maintain your power lines, and deliver the same reliable service. Plus, you can sign up whether you rent or own your home, and it doesn’t matter if your roof is shaded or faces the wrong direction.
While other eco-friendly actions such as installing solar panels on your roof, recycling, composting, switching to an electric car, or even just remembering to bring your reusable bags to the grocery store can often be difficult, choosing 100% wind and solar energy couldn’t be easier.
