CleanChoice Energy is a clean energy supplier with a mission to make clean energy accessible for everybody. Their goal is to make it as easy as possible for customers to make a big impact on the air we breathe and on the environment. You don’t need to install solar panels or even own your home, apartment, or business space—you simply make the switch, and they make sure all the energy you use is replenished on the grid with 100% clean wind and solar power.
Bring your latest energy company utility bill (or pull it up on your mobile device) to the event for a free bill analysis so you can make the switch to 100% clean, renewable energy with a special event rate.
