My family voluntarily pays more than we have to for our electricity and natural gas. This may seem a crazy notion – indeed, some of my neighbours have said as much, but less indelicately (“it’s interesting and cool”) – but it’s the right thing to do. Traditional energy is underpriced, because the price does not include the energy’s total cost to the environment and our health. Renewable energy (currently) costs more, but the price represents the real cost. So I’m willing to pay, not just for myself, but to expand the viability of renewable energy, and to ultimately lower the cost for everyone.
I’m trying to save civilization for my kids. And yours too. You’re welcome.
