Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 22, 2010
In celebration of Earth Day today, WhiteFence is holding a Virtual Plant-athon that allows people to make the planet a greener place just by becoming a fan of WhiteFence on Facebook. WhiteFence will donate a $1 to the Arbor Day Foundation to plant a tree for every new fan of the company between Earth Day (April 22nd) and Arbor Day (April 30th), up to $1,500. This is a simple way for anyone to make a difference without having to spend a dime, and could result in 1,500 new trees in the world.
Another way consumers can reduce their impact on the planet on Earth Day or all year round is to switch to an electricity plan featuring power generated from renewable sources. While green energy plans are available to millions of Americans in deregulated markets such as Texas, many are not aware they have the ability to switch. When they shop at WhiteFence, consumers can easily discover their clean energy options, compare plans and order new service, all on just one site.
Reducing energy use with things like compact florescent light bulbs and programmable thermostats are great steps toward being more environmentally conscious, but they only address one side of the battle. By switching to a renewable energy source along with cutting usage, a household can cut its carbon emissions drastically. While it used to be the case that only those willing to install their own solar panels and windmills were able to power their home with clean energy, over the last few years consumers have seen a steady stream of green energy options showing up on the market. It is now possible to find electricity plans that provide power over the grid that has been generated using wind, solar, geothermal and other eco-friendly sources.
WhiteFence is devoted to connecting every household with the best home services available, and has already served over five million Americans. The free service is the nation's leading resource to discover, compare and order green electricity service. With Earth Day being today, this is the perfect time for people to go green with WhiteFence and participate in the WhiteFence Virtual Plant-athon and also shop for a renewable energy plan.
WhiteFence is a free service that helps people find the best deals on phone, Internet, television, electricity, natural gas and other home services. By simply entering a street address into the secure site, people looking to save money or start new service can find the most comprehensive list of plans available for their specific address from over 400 nationally recognized partners. As a trusted home service shopping source for 24 million people annually, WhiteFence makes it easy to establish service directly on the site in a few simple steps.
