Nonprofit Energy Alliance

Update on February 3, 2014
 
"Late on Friday, January 31, 2014, we learned that the recent extreme weather, which sent the wholesale electricity market into unchartered territories, has forced Clean Currents to cease operations.  All Clean Currents’ customers will be returned to their utility service, effective immediately, with no interruption. What does this mean for nonprofits?
 
If you are a participant in our Nonprofit Energy Alliance (NPEA) or under contract with Clean Currents:
 
We are currently working with Groundswell, NPEA’s new clean energy partner, to ensure that all current NPEA participants have the opportunity to be included in the next round. To apply, please fill out Groundswell's application by March 14th.
 
For more information:
Please know that we remain committed to helping our nonprofit partners save on electricity while accessing clean and renewable energy in a hassle-free manner.  So, someone from Groundswell’s Community Power Program will be in touch with your organization in the next few days and don’t hesitate to contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

In the meantime, you will receive a notice from your utility company about your account.  If you do nothing, your building(s) will be switched back to Standard Offer Service.  If you make the choice to stay with affordable clean energy, Nonprofit Energy Alliance and Groundswell are here to guide you through that process in the coming weeks.
 
If you are new to the possibility of saving money while switching to cleaner energy that protects the environment and builds a greener economy:
 
The NPEA (a project of Nonprofit Roundtable/Nonprofit Montgomery and the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County) is partnering with Groundswell on a spring opportunity.  To date over 230 organizations have saved more than $1 million on their energy bills through the Community Power Program and the NPEA. By switching to wind power, we have reduced emissions from gas and coal to take the equivalent of 17,000 cars off the road for one year.  For more information:

How it worksnpea1

By joining the Community Power Program, you become part of a purchasing group with greater strength to negotiate with power companies. As part of the group, you can lower your electric bills while switching to 100% wind power. You can expect to free up resources to fund your mission while buying energy that also protects the environment and builds a greener economy.

Join our upcoming webinars to learn more about our spring program or read more on our website.
