Ethical Electric is a renewable energy company empowering utility customers to cut emissions and support clean energy through 100 percent renewable electricity. The company buys electricity from regional wind and solar farms in wholesale competitive energy markets and sells it to homes and businesses through their existing utilities instead of fossil fuel-based power. Ethical Electric supports environmental causes, is a Certified B Corporation, and a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, and is certified with the highest available rating by Green America’s Green Business Network, the first and largest network of socially and environmentally responsible business.
Ethical Electric has quickly grown to become the fourth-largest direct-to-consumer renewable retail energy provider in the United States, expanding to nearly 70,000 customers in seven states and the District of Columbia through campaign-based microtargeting. The company has provided over 958,577,000 kilowatt-hours of clean energy to its customers, which means it has kept 1.45 billion pounds of carbon dioxide out of the air and had the environmental impact equal to planting and growing roughly 17 million trees for ten years.
