About CleanChoice Energy

CleanChoice Energy is a clean energy supplier whose mission is to make 100% renewable energy available to everyone. With CleanChoice Energy you don’t need to install solar panels or even own your home, apartment, or business space to reduce your impact on the environment. 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. There’s no home visit, upfront costs, complicated installations, or interruptions in your service. When you choose CleanChoice Energy as your energy supplier, they make sure every kilowatt-hour of power you use comes from 100% renewable sources in your region, instead of polluting power sources. You can sign up for clean, renewable energy for your home or business in just a few minutes, and all you need is your utility bill to complete the process.

Right now, the power that comes to your home is likely from a mix of mostly non-renewable sources like coal, oil, and natural gas from fracking, which pollute our environment and contribute to climate change. With CleanChoice Energy, you can sit back and enjoy the fact that you're greatly reducing your carbon footprint and environmental impact on the planet everyday, without having to change your daily routine or make a long-term commitment, and without any home installation.

The Change We Seek®

CleanChoice Energy is part of a broader movement of people who care about the future. The company was built on the idea that there are people who agree with our vision for a better world and want to join a company that shares these values.

While CleanChoice Energy customers use electricity as normal, all the energy their homes and businesses use is replenished with clean power generated from wind and solar farms. CleanChoice prioritizes power from newer facilities to support the growth of the renewable energy industry and strives to source energy from farms as close to customers as possible, bringing cleaner air closer to home.

The CleanChoice Energy vision is a world free of catastrophic climate change with pure, clean air and abundant renewable energy. To this end, CleanChoice Energy is working to offer a range of 100% clean alternatives, transform the U.S. electricity market, and power as many homes and businesses with clean, renewable energy as possible.
