We just got off the phone with Nstar, one of the primary suppliers of electricity in the Boston area. They've recently launched a new program called NStar Green, which allows you to support wind energy for a small monthly fee. Here is what it will cost us per month...
The NStar representative said that it will add between $2.50 and $5.00 to our electric bill each month, depending on which plan we decided to support, the 50% or 100% wind energy support. Although we're already nervous about the cost of utilities this winter, we are so thrilled that NStar is purchasing wind energy for the Boston area that we went with the 100% plan. Once you sign up for the program, you can opt out at any time.
