Yesterday’s post focused on the “buy local” movement and how it applied to energy generation. The city of Rockville, Maryland has promoted the local trend with a “buy Rockville” campaign to boost local businesses. On Wednesdays through November, the city center featured an “out to lunch” farmer’s market to showcase local producers. Now, Clean Currents and the Rockville Chamber of Commerce are working together to help local businesses buy green power. Though the power is not locally produced, it brings local businesses together to make a positive environmental impact.

By purchasing power together, businesses that take part in the green power buying group will be able to take advantage of competitive bulk rates. Members will also recieve a discount on solar installations and energy efficiency audits from Clean Currents, allowing them to further their committment to green.

Gary Skulnik, President of Clean Currents, had this to say about the new green power buying group:

“As a Rockville business, we are proud that our local chamber is the first chamber in the state to recognize the need to switch to green energy…there’s a lot of talk about helping the environment, but the businesses and people in this city are taking concrete steps to truly make Rockville green.”

Andrea Jolly, from the Rockville Chamber of Commerce stated:

“We welcome the chance to help our members protect their bottom line, support the chamber, and protect the planet by working with Clean Currents”

Is your business interested? Come to the informational meeting for the first buying group, Nov. 19 at the Chevy Chase Suites Hotel.  Register at the Rockville Chamber of Commerce website.
