Live sustainably in an apartment

Power your apartment with clean energy

Electricity use accounts for most of our emissions generated so it makes sense to find clean energy options. If you live in an apartment, installing solar can be more complex than in a house. But there are other ways you can access clean energy through GreenPower, collective power purchasing, off-site purchasing and energy sharing. 

Find out how to power your apartment with clean energy.
