Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) January 18, 2006
OurEnergy.us, a Grand Rapids, MI-based renewable energy group, launches the Million Clean Homes Campaign. The campaign, which empowers U.S. consumers to drive the generation of clean American renewable energy at no cost to them, becomes the centerpiece of OurEnergy for 2006 and beyond.
OurEnergy seeks to advance the long-term development of clean energy in the US by lowering the barriers for participation between consumers and energy suppliers. With this new campaign, OurEnergy sets their sights on a clearly defined, and attainable, target. For every 2,500 OurEnergy members, the generation of 1 MW of clean renewable energy is required. 1 MW equals the energy needs of approx. 250 American homes.
Participating online retailers, including Staples, Expedia.com, Barnes & Noble, Office Max and hundreds of others, contribute a small percentage, an average of 2%, of each purchase to a renewable energy supplier designated by the OurEnergy member. By participating in the program, energy consumers stand to generate millions of kilowatt-hours a year in renewable energy, helping to offset the higher unit costs faced by the renewables industry, and lessening the demand for foreign and fossil fuels.
“The OurEnergy program enables uncomplicated domestic renewable energy generation,” says OurEnergy founder John Zyskowski. “With the launch of the Million Clean Homes Campaign, we are establishing precedence for energy consumer choice never seen before.”
By supporting local utility green pricing and national energy marketing programs, OurEnergy and the Million Clean Homes Campaign enable every American to participate in demanding more non-polluting domestic renewable energy generation.
