Can I Choose Sustainable Electricity Sources?
For many people, the move toward green energy is not only a matter of good sense, but also a way to put their religious and ethical values into action. Many states have Interfaith Power and Light companies that give people (of any faith, or of none at all) the opportunity to choose sustainable sources for their household electricity. The IPLs work with electricity providers to offer energy specifically from sources such as hydropower, solar power, or wind power. Choosing to power your house exclusively with these sources costs a few dollars more per month, but is well within the reach of many households and helps promote the development of more sustainable power generators.
