Starting last April and continuing through June 21, Clean Currents is donating $250 for each U Street business and $30 for each U Street home that signs up to purchase wind power as its source of electricity generation. Sustainable U will use this money to purchase new tree boxes for the 14th and U Street area.
Pepco customers have the option of choosing an alternative power supplier for their electricity. Clean Currents, which delivers renewable energy through wind power generated electricity, is one of the options through Pepco.
Next Sustainable U Meeting
The next meeting of Sustainable U is at 7 pm on Thursday, May 23, at the Paul Laurence Dunbar Apartments, 2001 15th Street, NW. The meeting will evaluate how the businesses and community we’re doing on their Clean Currents challenge and how we plan to make the most of the final month.
Sustainable U is a community-led initiative that strives to increase the availability of and participation in green living and working options in the 14th and U corridor.
To participate in the Sustainable U Clean Currents challenge, consumers should have their Pepco account number available and talk to Clean Currents representatives, and indicate they are a part of Sustainable U.
