FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW JERSEY (October 23, 2015)—Major environmental nonprofit organizations Greenfaith and Groundswell are joining forces this fall to take action against climate change by asking anyone who pays an electricity bill to switch their homes to 100% wind power.  Groundswell will pool together everyone who is interested in switching and negotiate for the region’s lowest available prices on clean power.

In preparation for the Paris Climate Summit this November 29 through December 12, 2015, GreenFaith is sharing this very simple action that can have a significant positive effect on climate change. By switching your home to 100% wind power, you can reduce your total carbon footprint by 25%. Supporting wind has the same greenhouse gas impact as planting 177 trees, or taking 2 cars off the road.

New Jersey residents,  learn more and to see your home’s price for 100% wind. Prices are available from now until December 12, 2015.
