Let’s take matters into our own hands and fight climate change together!
The effects of climate change are bearing down on the planet, impacting all living things. We’re running out of time, the clock is ticking, and we must act now.
Over 30% of energy-related CO2 in the U.S. is associated with residential and commercial electricity
Another 30% is related to the liquid transportation fuels that are transitioning to an electric-driven future.
WAITING FOR A POLITICAL SOLUTION IS NOT AN OPTION
Misinformation and disbelief in climate change abound, dampening the bipartisan political will to address one of the biggest challenges of our time.
Currently, less than 10% of home electricity is generated with renewable energy, which is needed to replace fossil fuels and cut CO2. Also, the amount of national generation capacity of green energy will only increase by 1% in the next five years, according to the U.S Energy Information Administration.
The economics of wind and solar facilities right now are not attractive enough to encourage construction of the immense new generation capacity required to replace fossil energy in the electric grid in the foresseable future.
WHY IS GREEN ENERGY GENERATION GROWING SO SLOWLY?
Because of lack of demand due to premium pricing of 100% green electricity plans.
To immediately drive up demand for green energy plans and create mass adoption to combat climate change, we need a market-driven solution that DOES NOT:
Cost the consumer any more than they are currently paying for energy
Cause inconvenience to consumers in taking action
Require changes in purchase patterns to unfamiliar brands
Depend on politics
Require new technology advancements or additional infrastructure
HOW CAN WE INDIVIDUALLY MAKE AN IMPACT NOW?
If large numbers of homeowners and companies in deregulated energy states (where consumers have a choice of providers and energy plans) will take the step of switching their electricity from a fossil-fuel plan to a 100% “green” energy plan, we can meaningfully reduce CO2 emissions over the next decade.
About 70% of the U.S. population lives in deregulated electricity states, which include Texas, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Ohio, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Maine, New Hampshire, Delaware, and Rhode Island. Washington DC. is also deregulated.
Currently, in the deregulated states, less than 10% of homeowners select 100% renewable energy plans because they are more expensive than fossil-fuel plans. Even when the price premium for green is one percent, only a small percentage of residents switch to green.
PRICE PARITY OF GREEN ENERGY AND FOSSIL ENERGY
MASS ADOPTION WILL ONLY OCCUR WHEN GREEN ENERGY REACHES THE SAME PRICE AS FOSSIL ENERGY
Electricity Club, the foremost pioneer in the digital marketing of residential electricity, has brought together the largest energy providers in de-regulated states to create the world’s first “green price parity” platform – GetGreenEnergy.com – offering lower-than-fossil pricing across major brands with one-stop convenience, launching in early 2020.
GetGreenEnergy.com represents a major milestone in renewable energy adoption and combatting climate change.
Because no government action is required and consumers actually save money by buying green energy, the platform will remove politics from climate change and find broad support.
GET GREEN ENERGY WILL OFFER CONSUMERS:
100% green energy plans at pricing less than fossil plans (better than parity)
Convenient 10-minute online and operator-assisted enrollment
No investment of any kind required (unlike home solar panels)
Availability in all deregulated electricity states
A selection of electricity providers representing over 50% of the market in order to minimize brand resistance
THE PLATFORM WILL PROVIDE
An opportunity for consumers to take action immediately and move the nation toward a net zero CO² future without requiring government intervention, new technology or additional infrastructure… and save money in the process.
A unique marketing channel for energy providers in which they will incur significantly lower customer acquisition costs by offering their plans on GetGreenEnergy.com versus their traditional advertising channels such as television, radio, billboard, and door-to-door sales.
LOWER CUSTOMER ACQUISITION COST MAKES PRICE PARITY SUSTAINABLE*
By dramatically reducing providers’ marketing costs, the platform will allow them to sustainably sell green for less than fossil, even if mass adoption of green plans pushes up the wholesale price providers pay for renewable energy.
THE PLATFORM WILL CAUSE:
Significantly increased construction of wind and solar capacity due to an exponential increase in demand for 100% green energy plans, pushing up wholesale prices paid to generators. The green energy mix in the grid will increase at the expense of fossil, driving down CO².
GREEN PRICE PARITY
DRIVES UP CONSUMER DEMAND
DRIVES UP WHOSALE PRICES
DRIVES UP GREEN GENERATION
DRIVES DOWN CO² LEVELS
To succeed, consumers must know they can purchase renewable-sourced electricity at a lower price than fossil with little effort.
It’s important that we spread the word with urgency. CO² levels are increasing at alarming rates and the thunderous warnings of climate change have become ever louder, alerting us to dangers for our planet, families and future generations.
But we can change this, together, now.
If you are:
- An influencer or organization who cares about climate change
- A local, state or national news outlet or journalist who produces stories about climate change or renewable energy
- A foundation that has climate change or renewable energy initiatives
- A politician who would be attracted to our market-based solution for climate change, and might include us in your press releases and platforms
- An academic institution that disseminates climate change and energy information
- A digital company that can help inform consumers about GetGreenEnergy.com in social platforms
- A company or membership group that can spread the word to employees and customers. GetGreenEnergy.com can even create a custom landing page on its website where your employees or members can save money on electricity while safeguarding the planet
