renewable electricity utility

Just signed up today: "Bullfrog Power". Heard about it from one of the EV association members in Ottawa.

That's great I been looking into that here but it like the phone companies. It's a lot more compicated than I thought. We have a lot of coal power here 35% only 4% renewable. Which is supprising because Texas has more renewable energy potential than any other state.

Anyway my children and their children thanks you

That means charging the ForkenSwift will be 100% emissions-free
That's a pretty convincing reason to switch. Heck, if I bet I could save money if I had an EV even if I was using one of those suppliers ($0.025 more / kW at 100%, or $0.0125 at a 50% mix), and that's before any tax deductions:

Dax - 10% wind? That's a lot.

SW - you can choose a mix of suppliers? We've got to pick just one supplier.

SVO - I'm betting on seeing lots o' coal in PA

SW - used the page, but could only find green suppliers, will look later when I'm not doing homework.

Darin - I live in NH now, and besides, my house in NJ is right near a nuclear plant, so I assume that does something.
