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. We have a friend who signed up and he assured us his bills didn't sky-rocket. We'll talk to him in more detail and try to get a breakdown of his bill.

The Independent shares a tip to go with the WIND option, not the GREEN: Consumption of electricity contributes to 40 percent of locally cleaner-generated air pollution. ConEdison Solutions gives New Yorkers the option to switch to 100 percent wind-generated electricity, a renewable energy powered by Northeast wind farms. Don't opt for the GREEN option. It uses power from Canadian hydroelectric power giant Hydro-Québec, whose mega-projects are harming Cree and Inuit indigenous communities in northwestern Québec.
What about you, AT readers? Anyone signed up for it yet?
