New Energy Company Already Growing Steadily
Viridian is a relatively new energy company. It’s small but growing quickly, and it already operates in Illinois, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. The company places some emphasis on its use of renewable electricity.
About The Company
Founded in 2009, Veridian Energy prides itself in providing its customers with green electricity at affordable rates.
Viridian takes pride in the fact that all of its products already meet the federal goal of 20 percent renewable power (proposed to be in effect by 2020). According to CEO Michael Fallquist, switching from dirty energy to this standard causes an energy consumer to reduce their annual carbon emissions by 588 pounds. That’s the equivalent of planting 35 trees.
Each year, Viridian launches an environmental project somewhere on Earth. The company’s 2011 effort involved reforestation in the Brazilian Amazon; next year, they plan to go somewhere in Africa.
Viridian offers two different types of plans: Everyday Green and Pure Green. These are both variable-rate plans, which fluctuate along with the market.
Everyday Green provides you with electricity sourced 20 percent from renewable sources, while Pure Green is a 100 percent renewable power plan. It costs about 15 percent more, and in exchange you have the knowledge that all of your electricity is coming from a renewable source of power.
Viridian also has plans set up for small businesses. For larger commercial and industrial enterprises, it’s worth contacting the company to see if they will cut you a deal!
