The Cleaner Energy Option

Did you know that the production of electricity is the largest source of industrial air pollution in the country? Fortunately, SmartEnergy offers high-quality and affordable renewable energy that is better for the environment.

By choosing SmartEnergy as your electricity provider, you’ll be able to help the planet without hurting your budget.

SmartEnergy & the Arbor Day Foundation

For every new customer, SmartEnergy will support the planting of a tree through the Arbor Day Foundation. These trees will be planted by foundation members in your state, resulting in cleaner air, better storm-water management, and energy-saving shade for homes and businesses. It’s the gift that makes a lasting difference.
