This morning I logged in online to pay my electricity bill online and got a shock. Sure, it’s winter but the charges were way too high even for the seasonal change. And then I realized that I’d signed up for a green energy company as my energy supplier who had lured me in with a great introductory rate but over the last many months, had nearly doubled their rates compared with the other suppliers in my area. While I was proud of making that change to green energy when I signed up, I realized that living green isn’t just economically viable for most people.
