Check it out…. A new Clean Currents video features WSB Sustainability Coordinator, Michel Anderson, and Handwork Teacher, Cate Mulvihill. Plus, a few 3rd grade students (and our chickens) make a cameo. And remember if you sign your home up for Clean Currents wind power, and mention The Waldorf School of Baltimore, we will receive $15 towards future green projects.
Just a quick update regarding our Clean Currents campaign and fundraiser. . . .
In the end, our students successfully inspired 15 people to sign up for renewable, wind energy in their home. During this campaign we received $30 for every new signee. So these 15 people raised our school $450 for future sustainability and gardening projects! We were only 5 people away from getting that $500 bonus, but hopefully we can get it next time, as Clean Currents has agreed to do another campaign with us next year.
In the meantime, BGE rates are on the increase! And you still have time to lock in a lower rate while getting your home off of coal-based energy. Because of our efforts, Clean Currents has offered us an ongoing partnership! From here on out anyone that mentions WSB when they sign up will raise our school $15! So if you haven’t done it yet, you still can. A special THANK YOU goes out to the 15 people for making the switch! Our school and the world are better for it!
Update: 6/15/13 – 3 more households signed up for Clean Currents and mentioned our school! Thank you for your support!
Greetings! With Spring just around the bend, WSB is proud to announce a new partnership with Clean Currents. Clean Currents is one of the leading green energy providers in our area, and together we will be encouraging you to take a few simple steps to reduce your carbon footprint and support domestic, clean energy sources at little or no extra cost. Emily Conrad is the head of Clean Currents outreach program, the Green Neighborhood Challenge, and will be visiting our school and doing educational demonstrations and activities with our students over the next 2 months. She will also be attending faculty and parent meetings to empower you to make the switch to renewable energy. (Fun Fact: Emily is also an alumna of the Washington Waldorf School in DC).
Over the next 60 days (until 5/5), for every household that switches to Clean Currents, and mentions “The Waldorf School of Baltimore,” we will receive $30 for our school garden program! Plus for every 20 households that sign up we will get a $500 bonus!
Signing up is super easy. You don’t have to own a home, you just have to be in charge of paying your electricity bills.
Check out current rates and make the switch HERE:
- No instillation or switching fees
