To help the environment the most is having your utility co get thier energy from a greener source. If you live in CT,MD,PA,NJ or NYC you can do just that. Nothing changes on your bill and they still service you incase of power outages. The best part is it costs less then what you are paying now. So your helping the environment by going greener and putting some "green" back into your wallet. The company name is Viridian Energy. Power with purpose and hears my website for info and if you like you can become a customer as well. This company has stopped over 85 million lbs of carbon emissions from all their customers going greener!
