2. Does your household purchase Green Energy?
Buying Green Energy requires no initial outlay, and is a good alternative if your roof is too shaded for solar panels or if you are renting. Green Energy costs around 6 cents per kWh more than electricity sourced from coal, but if you also take measures that reduce your consumption (other actions in this survey), your electricity bill might stay about the same.

Household electricity-related emissions are actually the easiest to eliminate - if we choose to spend some of our money on achieving a safer climate and less on other things. If that's not possible, however, there are plenty of actions in this survey that cost nothing.
