Has anyone else noticed the subway ads? They're a reminder to us to sign up for ConEd Solutions, which will switch our electric service to wind power.

It uses power from Canadian hydroelectric power giant Hydro-Québec, whose mega-projects are harming Cree and Inuit indigenous communities in northwestern Québec.
