Pear Energy, a small company based in Massachusetts, has a great way for ratepayers to fight climate change and support clean, renewable energy.
Pear Energy offers residential electricity customers and small business owners the opportunity to power their homes and businesses with 100% renewable energy, all without installing solar panels or turbines. With Pear, even renters can chose how their energy is generated. As a Pear Partner, the Alliance will receive $50 for each new Pear customer who mentions” the Alliance.” This money will help us continue our work at the state and local level to advocate for fair, affordable, environmentally responsible energy.
How it works: Pear buys renewable energy in an equal amount to your electric demand and trades it for the dirty energy the utility would have been using. Your utility still owns the lines, and delivers electricity to your home. There is no interruption of service, and reliability remains the same. Pear sends you one simple monthly statement that provides a clear breakdown of your utility and your Pear Energy charges. There are no hidden fees, just a 2 cent per kilowatt/hour charge. The additional charges, to secure 100% clean energy for your home, will amount to the price of a couple of coffees a week, or even less depending on your usage.
Pear Energy is working to reduce our reliance on dirty fossil fuels, including coal and fracked natural gas. Pear donates 1/2 of it’s profits to organizations fighting to secure a clean energy future. You will be eliminating all of your home-based carbon emissions, doing your part every month to fight climate change.
