WILLOWBROOK, Ill., Feb. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Nordic Energy Services, LLC, a leading alternative energy supplier throughout Illinois and NW Indiana, is partnering with Blue Planet Energy on a new "green" energy education initiative. Nordic Energy and Blue Planet Energy, an Illinois-based electricity marketer, recently reached an agreement for Nordic to be Blue Planet's primary supplier of electricity.
"It was very important for us to partner with a local, flexible and innovative organization for this initiative," said Craig Schuttenberg, President of Blue Planet Energy.

Currently donations have been made to four programs: Education and Actions for a Sustainable Energy Efficiency (www.EASEE-USA.org); Alliance to Save Energy Green Schools (www.ase.org/programs/green-schools-program);"e" inc. (www.e-action.us); and Solar One (www.solar1.org). Clients also have the option of directing donation dollars to a 501(c)(3) charity of their choice that specializes in green education programs.
Nordic Energy Services supplies both the commercial and residential markets with natural gas, electricity and renewable, "green" energy.

"We are committed to supplying green energy solutions to our customers and we're excited to partner with Blue Planet on educating the youth of tomorrow on this important issue."
