I live in a small townhome community on a mostly quiet dead-end street. When a salesperson comes to my door, I feel aggravated and imposed upon, while simultanéously feeling great respect for someone who is trying to earn a living by going door –to-door.
A few months ago, my husband signed up with an electricity supplier who had come to the door. As I had been intending to change our supplier for some time, it forced me to spring in to action. He had gotten a better price than we would have had we stayed with BGE… but I wanted more. I wanted to support renewable energy generation. After several phone calls (one to cancel the new subscription) and an online registration process, our energy supply now comes from renewable energy sources.
One resource that I just learned about that would have been very helpful to us in our energy supply decision process is:
Take a look at this invaluable information collected all in one place! You’ve got all the relevant data necessary to make an informed decision. Note: I work in the sustainability field, and even I wasn’t aware that this resource was available to Maryland residents.
Reducing our collective carbon footprint starts with small individual choices. Make the choice to support renewable energy generation!Laura A.T. Miller September 2013
