What's the carbon diet of your laptop? How does 1000 pounds of CO2 sound? Buying a renewable energy offset credit might be just the ticket to green your web-surfing and support wind energy, and buying one from PoweredGreen won't break the bank.
PoweredGreen's Wind Energy Sponsorships can help reduce carbon emissions by sponsoring new wind turbines to produce enough renewable energy to power your laptop for its lifetime. By purchasing a sponsorship for a measly $16, you get an offset of 690 kilowatt-hours of certified wind energy, which stops over 1000 pounds of CO2 emissions from being released.
The PoweredGreen lifetime renewable energy offset is based on laptop usage of ten hours a day, 365 days per year, for seven years. These credits are purchased from Horse Hollow Wind Energy Center in Texas, a spread of 22,500 acres with 735.5 megawatt capacity employing 421 wind turbines.
Purchasing an offset supports wind energy efforts and lowers our dependency on fossil fuels. The electricity produced at Horse Hollow enters the national grid and helps offset the carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide and mercury emissions from coal-burning power plants.
Get rid of your gadget guilt. Surf the web with renewable energy, and show your eco-pride with a PoweredGreen emblem.
