It matters where your electricity comes from. Join our Brookline campaign to purchase clean electricity through a local non-profit Green Energy Consumers and keep fossil fuels in the ground. Like others around the Commonwealth, Brookline households are enrolling in Green Energy Consumers supplied renewable energy.
We are committed to reducing fossil fuel dominance.
Here is why the team of Mother’s Out Front and Climate Action Brookline are partnering with Green Energy Consumers supplied clean electricity:
“For years, I found it difficult to take action on climate change, until I got involved with Mothers Out Front and saw that I can make an impact in our electricity supply with my choice of Green Energy Consumers for clean electricity supplier. I can influence the power grid in my own state to rely on renewables instead of fossil fuels. That’s real power.”
Daria Mark, Brookline resident Mother of 2
“Mothers Out Front and Climate Action Brookline deserve thanks for educating Brookline residents about how our electricity is generated and for helping us to support the development of local renewable energy. I'm proud to support the campaign and clean energy!"
Ben Franco, Brookline Board of Selectmen
If you pay your own electricity bill, you can invest in locally supplied clean electricity. Green Energy Consumers offers two clean energy levels: a 30% renewable option and a 100% renewable option. The recommended choice is the 100% option, since it helps keep more fossil fuels in the ground. The 100% option costs approximately four additional cents per kilowatt hour based on your usage. Since Green Energy Consumers is a non-profit, either of the clean electricity surcharges, like a donation, are federally tax deductible if you itemize.
The additional green-power cost of your electricity will be automatically billed by Green Energy Consumers. Green Energy Consumers sends you monthly email notifications with the amount of electricity you used and the amount your card will be charged for your clean electricity option. Green Energy Consumers also sends a year end summary of your clean energy charges for itemized tax deduction purposes. Eversource continues to bill you separately for basic electricity delivery services and remains your delivery repair provider. No hook ups are required.
Conservation effectively lowers your household electricity use and bill. Cutting back your consumption helps our climate and reduces your electricity costs. Learn more by reading Green Energy Consumers' "Energy Efficiency Guide."
Use our Green Power Calculator to see how much your household would pay based on usage for the 100% renewable or 30% renewable option.

Choose between two green energy portfolios:
100% Renewable This portfolio has the most impact in moving our state away from fossil fuels. We recommend this option.
30% Renewable (25% wind, solar, and cow power; 75% low-impact hydro from Maine
