When you purchase Wind Energy credits, wind-generated electricity is delivered to the New York power grid on your behalf, reducing the need for energy produced from other resources. Your purchase helps the environment and makes our communities even better places to live and work.

Is it really beneficial for me to switch to LED or CFL light bulbs?
Switching to light-emitting diodes (LEDs) or compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) is an easy way to use energy safely and wisely. It’s a change that will go a long way in helping you to reduce energy waste, greenhouse gas emissions, and the amount you spend on energy costs.
