A program that can save customers money and help fight global warming may sound too good to be true.

Yet, it is exactly as good as it sounds, according to an outreach coordinator for Clean Currents Green Power, a leading green energy company in the Mid-Atlantic.

Karen Sander, outreach coordinator, said the company will expand its offer of clean nationally-sourced wind power to electric customers in the PPL Electric Utilities territory.

"We're a small, sustainable business," said Sander, of Palmerton. "We help promote renewable energy to PPL customers and businesses to stop global warming and to help people lead a greener lifestyle."

Sander said the firm offers 50 or 100 percent natural wind power at rates lower than PPL at fixed rates of one or two years.

"The lasting benefits are that, one, we will save them money now, and two, once you change your impact on the environment, it will lead you to make other steps to fight global warming," she said. "I think with the recent oil spill, I think people are realizing we need to do something else."

What's more, Sander said the company plans to bring its unique, grassroots oriented Clean Current Green Energy Solutions Green Neighborhood Effect Challenge to the state.

The endeavor affords customers the ability to lock in competitive rates for their electricity and help the environment by supporting clean, renewable wind power, she said.

Sander said the Challenge is a community, school, or faith-based organization supporting clean, renewable energy that offers groups the opportunity to switch to supporting wind generated electricity by offering greener types of power for their home.

Community members can help encourage their friends and family to sign-up and, by doing so, leverage their efforts to have an even greater effect on reducing global warming gases, she said.

Anyone interested in the Challenge may sign up their homes for wind power at www.CleanCurrents.com [1].
