Alternatives, Inc. Goes Green!
Doing its Part for the Environment and Raising Funds for Special Needs
RARITAN, N.J., October 11, 2010 – Alternatives is ‘going green’ by choosing their own energy supplier. By switching to Viridian Energy, the agency saves money and raises funds for its programs. Consumers can choose where to buy electricity just like choosing a long-distance phone company. What’s more, through Viridian Energy consumers can be ahead of the federal environmental goal for 20% of the nation’s energy to come from a renewable source by 2020. Viridian already offers 20% and 100% renewable options. In just over a year and a half, Viridian Energy has saved their customers over $4.5 million while avoiding nearly 22 million pounds of carbon emissions. Who says you can’t live a green lifestyle while keeping more green in your pocket?
Alternatives has converted all of its residential programs throughout central New Jersey to Viridian Energy. This switch will save Alternatives an average of 10-15% off monthly energy bills. As a non-profit, Alternatives can also raise funds when its constituents switch over. Viridian will pay Alternatives $2 per month for each person who makes the switch. You keep the same energy provider - the only thing that changes is where your energy comes from. To learn more about this opportunity visit www.viridian.com/alternativesinc. Making the switch couldn’t be easier.
Based in Raritan, Alternatives provides residential, employment, and support services to individuals with developmental disabilities, mental illness and other special needs. The agency provides services in Somerset, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth and Warren Counties. For information on Alternatives, please call 908-685-1444 or visit www.alternativesinc.org.
