NSTAR Residential Customers in Massachusetts Can Potentially Save Over 24% on the Supply Side of Electric Bills; Commercial Customers Can Potentially Save Over 21%

Do you live in Massachusetts? Do you get an electric bill at your home from NSTAR? If you answered yes to those two questions then your cost per kilowatt hour may be rising to 9.33¢ per kilowatt hour on January 1st, 2014 and you will continue to pay 9.33¢ per kilowatt hour until June 30th, 2014 if you are a NSTAR Fixed Rate customer. And it’s only going to get worse if you are NSTAR Variable Rate customer because its variable rate is almost assuredly going to be higher that it’s fixed rate per kilowatt hour during the month of January, 2014.

I want to help save you money by having you choose Viridian Energy as the supplier of your electricity at the rate of 7.49¢ per kilowatt hour for NStar customers in Massachusetts by choosing Viridian Energy’s +50% Renewable Energy 12 Month Fixed Rate product. That’s over a 24% savings on the supply side of your electric bill from now until June 30th, 2014! And remember, NSTAR’s Fixed Rate product could rise even higher than its 9.33¢ fixed rate on July 1st, 2014 and I’d be willing to bet that NSTAR’s fixed rate won’t dip below 7.49¢ any time between July 1st, 2014 and December 31st, 2014! This is a no brainer! I gave the opportunity to customers of National Grid in a blog post I posted on October 16th to save substantial amounts of money on their electric bills but many didn’t take the opportunity.

Do you run a business in Massachusetts? Do you get an electric bill at your business in Massachusetts? If you answered yes to those two questions then your cost per kilowatt hour may be rising to 9¢ per kilowatt hour on January 1st, 2014 and you will continue to pay 9¢ per kilowatt hour until June 30th, 2014 if you are a NSTAR Fixed Rate customer. And it’s only going to get worse if you are NSTAR Variable Rate customer because its variable rate is almost assuredly going to be higher that it’s fixed rate per kilowatt hour during the month of January, 2014.

I want to help save you money by having you choose Viridian Energy as the supplier of your electricity at the rate of 7.39¢ per kilowatt hour for NStar customers in Massachusetts by choosing Viridian Energy’s +50% Renewable Energy 12 Month Fixed Rate product. That’s over a 21% savings on the supply side of your electric bill from now until June 30th, 2014!

A Koch Brother Is Behind Cape Wind’s Delays

I wrote a blog post back on July 9th entitled “Why Is the Cape Wind Project Controversial?!” because the project doesn’t seem to naturally generate much controversy from my standpoint. The New York Times yesterday published an article entitled “Koch Brother Wages 12-Year Fight Over Wind Farm“. It turns out that William “Bill” I. Koch, worth a reported $4,000,000,000, is behind Cape Wind’s delays. ComradeGee, a user at Reddit, sums up the reasoning behind William “Bill” I. Koch’s fight very nicely in a comment posted on Reddit today. ComradeGee wrote, partially: “It’s not about the view, it’s about the Koch’s energy empire. This would be the first utilities scale off-shore wind installation in the United States–once this is build it’s essentially giving the greenlight to investors for similar projects.” I don’t blame William “Bill” I. Koch for wanting to protect his business interests but to do it at the cost of a competing business that will help all of his neighbors is disgusting.

Fight against William “Bill” I. Koch and brown energy by choosing Viridian Energy as your provider of green energy. Go to Vert Power to get started.

Massachusetts Based FloDesign Is Making Waves in Wind Power

So I was reading my September, 2013 edition of Fast Company in bed on Sunday night and came across a story about a Massachusetts company called FloDesign which is re-imagining and, as a result, re-engineering the traditional wind turbine. Instead of needing and using wind to create propulsion the scientists at FloDesign thought that adding a shroud around the fan’s blades could actually accelerate the flow of air through the blades, and as a result, increase the fan’s efficiency by maybe 100% over a traditional wind turbine. Think of the science behind jet engines but with no fuel source except for wind. The company is actually testing one of their wind turbines at Deer Island.

Here’s a quick YouTube video of the experimental wind turbine at Deer Island in action.

Wind power is sexy because it is more environmentally friendly than any other traditional type of energy that we currently use in our lives today and it is the future. Do you want to be sexy?

Viridian Energy is the future of green energy. You can be sexy knowing that you aren’t contributing to the pollution caused by the production and use of coal and oil by choosing Viridian Energy as the supplier of the electricity coming into your home or office. Go to Vert Power and input your zip code to get started. Thanks.

“I am with Just Energy and they charge ten cents per kilowatt hour. I just got my new bill for $571.”

So I posted Viridian Energy’s August, 2013 rate sheets to Facebook on Monday and I got a comment on that post from one of my cousins, Pattianne, which is the title of this blog post. I’m not here to shame any other Energy Service Company’s (ESCO’s) but I thought that I’d relay this story because it’s an important one. Pattianne was paying 10 cents per kilowatt hour as a customer of Just Energy for her home’s electric bill in Amesbury, MA. One of my other second cousins is/was a representative of Just Energy and he sold her that product last year; it’s a 100% green energy product. It turns out that Pattianne would’ve been paying 37.93% less on the supply side of her electric bill if she had decided to stay with National Grid using Just Energy’s rate of 10 cents per kilowatt hour versus National Grid’s currently advertised rate of 7.25 cents per kilowatt hour for its fixed rate product. Just Energy is currently advertising 9.39 cents per kilowatt hour for its 12 month fixed rate product. I don’t know why she was being charged ten cents per kilowatt hour. Maybe her fixed rate expired? Pattianne did even better by choosing Viridian Energy yesterday. She is now saving: 6.77% over National Grid’s currently advertised rate of 7.25 cents per kilowatt hour; a staggering 38.29% over Just Energy’s currently advertised rate of 9.39 cents per kilowatt hour; and a mind blowing 47.27% over Just Energy’s rate of 10 cents per kilowatt hour that she’s currently paying by choosing Viridian Energy’s 20% Everyday Green 6 Month Fixed Rate product at only 6.79 cents per kilowatt hour. That fantastic!

It’s not only important to work with a Viridian Energy Independent Associate but it’s even more important to work with me as your Viridian Energy Independent Associate because I do the dirty work to help make the planet green.

A Harvard University Paper Estimates the True Cost of Coal Is $500,000,000,000 Per Year

I was just made aware of this study entitled “The full cost accounting for the life cycle of coal” which was put out by researchers headed by the now deceased Dr. Paul R. Epstein of Harvard University in 2011 by another Viridian Energy Independent Associate on my team today. What the paper is saying is that coal is paid for in other ways that are not accounted for when we pay our electric bills.

“The monetizable impacts found are damages due to climate change; public health damages from NOx, SO2, PM2.5, and mercury emissions; fatalities of members of the public due to rail accidents during coal transport; the public health burden in Appalachia associated with coal mining; government subsidies; and lost value of abandoned mine lands.”

Here is the abstract of the paper:

Each stage in the life cycle of coal—extraction, transport, processing, and combustion—generates a waste stream and carries multiple hazards for health and the environment. These costs are external to the coal industry and thus are often considered as “externalities.” We estimate that the life cycle effects of coal and the waste stream generated are costing the U.S. public a third to over one-half of a trillion dollars annually. Many of these so-called externalities are, moreover, cumulative. Accounting for the damages conservatively doubles to triples the price of electricity from coal per kWh generated, making wind, solar, and other forms of non fossil fuel power generation, along with investments in efficiency and electricity conservation methods, economically competitive. We focus on Appalachia, though coal is mined in other regions of the United States and is burned throughout the world.

Clean coal, as the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE) currently champions, is a casuistry. Coal is dirty and there’s no way to get around that filthy fact. It doesn’t take a highly trained physician from Harvard University to tell us that because it should be common sense.
