PROJECT TYPES

reforestation

REFORESTATION
Projects involving the management and growth of biologically diversified and sustainable forestry, often protected by conservation rules to ensure longevity. Forests convert CO2 to O2 naturally repairing the CO2 imbalance in the environment.

methane-gas

METHANE GAS CAPTURE
Projects of methane gas emissions capture from landfills used to generate electricity. These recovery programs are capable of collecting and destroying large quantities of methane that have the emission reduction equivalent of taking thousands of cars off the road

biomass-conversion

BIOMASS CONVERSION
Projects of biomass conversion use crops and plant waste and turn them into energy, resulting in sustainable fuel. This fuel is low impact on the environment because the conversion does not result in harmful greenhouse gases.

[1] Calculation based on the average home’s usage of 5500kWh per year, with a difference in rate between non-green and green being 1.98 cents/kWh.

Make a Difference

The carbon offset projects are a combination of projects that reduce emissions as well as increase the carbon sink (neutralizers). They are all verified projects from Canada or the USA.

What are Carbon Offsets?

Carbon Offsets are measurable and tangible benefits generated from environmental projects. The Energy Offsets you contribute to are for emission reduction projects achieved by environment-conscious people just like you! American homeowners and businesses are doing their part to reduce their emissions by switching to alternative energy sources such as wind and solar, as well as other emission reduction activities like tree-planting and methane gas recapture.

How will I make a difference when I enroll in the Family Energy EverGreen Program?

When you choose to offset your home’s electricity emissions with Family Energy, you are canceling out a corresponding amount of Greenhouse Gas emissions produced elsewhere.

Why are Greenhouse Gases so dangerous?

Greenhouse Gases and emissions are often used to describe man-made gases that negatively affect the earth’s atmospheric filters. These Greenhouse Gases trap and hold heat causing global warming.

The Family Energy Green Program provides homeowners with a means to do their part to save the environment here at home, which benefits the world.
