Climate change threatens every Rhode Islander; every Rhode Islander is responsible to act. Here's a simple action you can take for our climate.
Audubon Society of Rhode Island has worked alongside Green Energy Consumers as a clean energy advocate for many years. Now we're working together to ask Rhode Islanders to choose green electricity through Green Energy Consumers' "Green Powered" program.
Climate change is an unequivocal threat to every Rhode Islander. Audubon has been a tireless advocate of responsible climate change policy, a promoter of green infrastructure, and a supporter of efforts toward climate resiliency. But climate change requires every Rhode Islander to enlist in taking action--through small steps and large strides.
Switching to Green Powered is a small step with a mighty impact. Enroll in just 5 minutes, and make a difference every time you pay your electric bill. Plus, say Audubon referred you, and Green Energy Consumers will donate up to $50 to us.
Right now, most of your electricity comes from burning fossil fuels and from nuclear power. When you make the switch to Green Powered, your home’s electricity consumption will be matched with 100% renewable energy from New England, removing the need for fossil fuels to power your home.
That means fewer fossil fuels on the grid.
