While Duke Energy customers in Indiana have been able to buy power produced from wind/solar/biomass for a little while now, Ohio customers have not had the chance...until now. DE is soon to pilot a green energy for the Cincinnati area that will last until the end of 2008 (and hopefully they keep it). Customers will soon be able to sign up for a certain amount of their total energy to come from green sources. This starts at 200kWh (the average customer according to the Cincinnati Enquirer uses 850/month) for $5 extra a month, with the option of purchasing blocks of 100kWH extra at $2.50. Even if you buy the minimum amount offered, it is an easy way to make a huge difference for the environment and a help the area to become more energy independent. Let's show Duke Energy that there is a demand for cleaner energy in the Cincinnati area! -via LiveGreenCincinnati
May's edition of Green Drinks Cincinnati is going to be held next Thursday, 5/17 at Arnold's Bar and Grill (courtyard area). Imago, a Cincinnati nonprofit that focuses on greenspace preservation and urban ecology, will be stopping by to tell us a little bit about what they do. Green Drinks starts at 5:30 with the Imago presentation probably around 6. So, come on out (hopefully the weather stays this beautiful), bring a friend (or three) and come grab a drink with your fellow eco-Cincinnatians.
