On April 22, Groundswell announced their winning wind suppliers and their negotiated prices. This spring, Progressive Maryland is working with Groundswell and their partners Interfaith Power & Light, Chesapeake Climate Action Network, and Power of Wind, as well as others,  to join in a group purchase of clean power for homes and apartments.





Thanks to over 1,000 people joining together, anyone who pays a utility bill in Maryland, the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, and Delaware can switch their home or apartment to 100% clean energy at a price that is 4% - 8% less expensive than switching to wind power on your own.



You can do more than recycle. You have the choice to switch to wind power, which is like planting 177 trees!


Click on this link ( to see the negotiated, fixed prices and sign up for the most affordable wind energy available in your area.


For example, in Maryland, Pepco-MD customers will:

-¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† *¬†Only pay ¬Ĺ cent more per kWh for clean energy as opposed to dirty energy (SOS)

-         *  Pay 8% less through Groundswell than if they tried to purchase wind energy on their own

-¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† *¬†Pay about $4.50 more a month (which is equal to about 2 cups of coffee, 1/2 of a movie ticket, or 1 ¬Ĺ gallons of milk!)


Also, Groundswell will make a $10 donation to Progressive Maryland for everyone from our community who enrolls.


Remember to have your electricity bill in hand. THE DEADLINE TO ENROLL IS May 22!
