100% Renewable & Less Expensive = Better Electricity

Thanks to Cheryl Smith for spreading the word about this opportunity to make life, environment & pocketbook better in Wilmette and Kenilworth by encouraging the town governments to choose PowerPurchasing Program electricity.

As she recommends below, you can add your support to this with a simple click & send.

To Make It Better:

I want to tell your readers about an opportunity for residents and small business owners in Kenilworth and Wilmette to both save on their electricity bills and improve our environment at the same time. We can do this by choosing 100% renewable energy for the joint PowerPurchasing Program for our villages.

The American Lung Association’s 2012 annual State of the Air Report gave Cook County an “F” for Ozone and Particulates. If we choose Renewable Energy suppliers, we can improve the wellbeing of our communities.

All households and small businesses will save money under the proposed Program. We will each save just a little less if we choose renewable energy – between $0.83 and $3.00 per month: to put this in perspective, that is, roughly, one cup of coffee ($2.89) at a local restaurant, per household, per month.

Please join me in asking our Village Boards to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities by negotiating for 100% renewable energy. The time is now.

Send a brief email to:

• Kathleen Gargano, Assistant Village Manager in Wilmette at garganok
• Fred Steingraber, Village President of the Board of Directors in Kenilworth at info

These individuals will see that all letters are collected and given to the Village Trustees prior to their open meetings on the aggregation issue on May 21st (Kenilworth Village Board Room, 7:30 pm) and May 22nd (Wilmette Village Hall Council Room, 7:30 pm).

This is our opportunity to lead by example, please take a minute to send an e-mail.

Thank you,
