40th Anniversary of Earth Day, Thursday, April 22, 2010

“Power the Earth Day Movement” is the Earth Day Network’s theme for the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, Thursday, April 22, 2010.  What better way to “power” up energy efficiency, renewable energy and green jobs than by going solar?

As of Tuesday, March 16 the Earth Day network website has registered 15,062,212 billion acts of green pledged, 59 campaigns to celebrate the movement and 752,766 members participating in the celebration.  More than 1 billion people celebrate Earth day, making it the largest secular civic event in the world.  You too can participate this year.  By going solar you greatly reduce or eliminate your electrical bill, hedge against future utility rate increases, become a role model for your neighborhood and community and benefit the planet, all at once!  Solar is a great way to power your home and the Earth Day 2010 movement!

Right now HelioPower and SunRun are offering two free months of electricity if you sign up before March 31, 2010.   Click here for more information.
