The Power of Wind!

On February 16, 2011, in Los Angeles, by Nathan

Hey LA!  Next week there are a couple of meet ups for LA Planeteers.   In addition to getting together and having a good time, we’d love for you to being your ideas for Planeteer projects too.  There is some great work being done in LA, from planting trees to cleaning beaches to promoting farmers markets – LA is where it’s at.

In addition to all that awesome work, there is another neat way you can help to build a green LA.  Did you know that the LA Department of Water and Power has a green power program?  You can sign up for it for just three cents per kilowatt-hour of electricity – and depending on what you can afford, you can sign up to have anywhere between 20% and 100% of your power come from renewable source like wind.

If you think about it, you have a choice.  You have to pay your electric bill anyway, so do you want to be paying for coal to be burned, or for wind turbines to be built?  The power is yours!

The program is awesome, but it is far smaller than other similar programs in other cities.  The City of LA had a goal to get to 20% renewable power by 2010.  That deadline has come and gone, but the program hasn’t.  Some LA Planeteers are thinking about how to spread the word and get more people to sign up.  Do you have any ideas for how we can do that?

We’ll see you next week, and we can’t wait to hear your ideas for this project and lots more!
