Want to reduce your carbon footprint from electricity?
When you join Second Nature we're able to buy more earth-friendly renewable electricity produced from wind, solar and bioenergy, which displaces power made from conventional fuels.
Each household participating in Second Nature at the 100 percent level reduces carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to removing 1.8 passenger cars from the road.* Business customers can join as well.
