Not entirely true. Renewable energy production has doubled in the U.S. under Obama's plan. CONGRESS is hedging on eliminating tax breaks for the oil and gas industries. These monies could be directly re-invested in renewable energy.

OK, I have been with this company now for a few months and am ready to recommend.

I am not actually powering my house with wind by paying my bill through them. It is more like buying carbon offsets. But I am at least doing something to encourage and fund the growth of wind energy, and doing it by something I would do anyway. It is not expensive and, believe me, living on Social Security that is important to me. For me it is also a great convenience that I can pay the bill on line, which I can't do to the local company without using Western Union. They do not claim anything on the website that turns out not to be true. I consider it well worth looking into.
