As a Green Power Switch program participant, in the month of March, approximately 20% of Square Books' electricity use came from renewable sources—a combination solar, wind, or biomass. In my home, this figure was closer to 40%, and, if the amount of power from hydroelectric sources is included, it approaches 50%.
Renewable sources here presently cost more than other sources, and volunteering for this program adds a bit to one's utility bill. However, as the cost of renewable energy continues to decrease, then the amount of renewable energy one purchases, for the same amount of money, will increase.
In Oxford-Lafayette County, Green Power Switch is implemented through Northeast Mississippi Power and Oxford Electric Department (662-232-2373).
Square Books is proud to support renewable energy—at no extra cost to our customers—and we thank you for your support of Square Books.
