There are many benefits of purchasing envirowatt portions: you help support the future of renewable energy and you help reduce carbon dioxide emissions – all things to feel good about.

With four options, including solar, wind, biomass and hydro, you have the choice of how your renewable energy dollars are spent. You have the power to designate how your $2.75 portion is used. Each renewable energy option has a varying amount of carbon dioxide offset per portion.

For example under current market prices, a $2.75 portion of solar supplies 1,170 pounds of carbon dioxide offset. That's the equivalent to removing emissions from consumption of 59.7 gallons of gasoline or annual greenhouse gas emissions from 1,264 miles/year driven by an average passenger vehicle.

If you purchase a $2.75 portion of wind, you offset 6,240 pounds of carbon dioxide. That's the equivalent to removing emissions from consumption of 318 gallons of gasoline or annual greenhouse gas emissions from 6,739 miles/year driven by an average passenger vehicle.

Purchasing a $2.75 portion of hydro offsets 6,686 pounds of carbon dioxide. That's the equivalent to removing emissions from consumption of 341 gallons of gasoline or annual greenhouse gas emissions from 7,221 miles/year driven by an average passenger vehicle.

If you purchase a $2.75 portion of biomass you offset 3,470 pounds of carbon dioxide. That's the equivalent to removing emissions from consumption of 177 gallons of gasoline or annual greenhouse gas emissions from 3,748 miles/year driven by an average passenger vehicle.

Plus, there's no maximum of portions you can purchase. To increase the green benefits of envirowatts, you can purchase as many portions as you'd like.
