Dear  ,

It's cold outside and there is snow everywhere in Needham, but we're thinking green.  We'd like to help you green your electricity and recognize great green businesses in our community.  Read on for details.

Greening Your Electricity: How You Can Choose Clean Energy


Green Needham will explain the options for any electric customer to bring more renewable energy into the grid - even if you're not a candidate for solar panels. The list of green energy choices is growing - from having a share in a "solar garden" to opting to buy green power. What are the different green energy choices, how do those options support clean energy, and how do they affect your electric bill? After a brief presentation, there will be time to ask questions and to speak with representatives of various green energy offerings.
