Your utility bill is a choice. Groundswell’s negotiated rates makes choosing clean energy easy and affordable
 
The power of buying in bulk – it’s the smart way to switch to wind.

Groundswell and partners have brought together more than 400 community organizations and 10,000 people to join in group purchases of wind power over the past seven years.  

Why wind? Taking 5 minutes to switch to wind reduces your household carbon footprint by about 25%. Switching your home or apartment to wind is the carbon impact of planting 177 trees. If 1,500 people switch to wind power together, that’s like taking 2,250 cars off the road.

Your money matters! Instead of paying a coal plant to produce pollution and asthma, the money you pay for electricity will go to a wind farm and will help create a better, pollution-free future.
