Smart Energy for Your Business

Offset your business natural gas use with Smart Energy.

If you are a business owner, you can either commit to offsetting 100 percent of your CO2 emissions for one year or determine what percentage of your emissions you wish to offset based on the amount of your monthly contribution.

Join Smart Energy

The Climate Trust, a non-profit with an established record of managing offset projects, will keep track of all Smart Energy offsets. All businesses participating in Smart Energy will receive a report at the end of the year documenting how many tons of greenhouse gas emissions were prevented by Smart Energy investments. Businesses signing up at the 100 percent offset level for one year will receive the marketing benefits provided to Smart Energy Circle members.
