The Nonprofit Energy Alliance was recognized by the Montgomery County Council for its collective purchasing approach to securing its electricity needs through Clean Currents.
The Alliance, which is a collaboration between the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County, Nonprofit Montgomery, and the Nonprofit Roundtable of Greater Washington and represents like-minded nonprofits in the county, worked with Clean Currents to secure renewable wind power for its member organizations at a lower cost than could have been achieved had each member pursued its electricity needs independently.
Since launching in May 2010, the Alliance has helped over 50 nonprofit organizations decrease their electric costs to the tune of a combined $366,000. By working with Clean Currents the Alliance has helped area nonprofit dollars go farther (and greener).

I'm like many mothers I know, concerned about the planet our kids will inherit and overwhelmed by daily life. Clean Currents made it simple and affordable to switch to 100% wind power, without breaking my back or the bank.
