IRVING, Texas, April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate Earth Day, First Choice Power will have a "Green Out" to ensure that the total energy usage of all its customers for one day will be offset with electricity generated from renewable sources in Texas. Throughout the month, First Choice Power also will be incenting customers to make energy-efficient changes in the home.
"First Choice Power believes in the importance of controlling energy consumption in our homes and increasing the demand for energy produced through renewable sources every day," said Brian Hayduk, president of First Choice Power. "Earth Day is an opportunity to remind customers and potential customers the many ways they can participate and join us in the celebration through their energy plans, homes and social networks."
Visitors to First Choice Power's Facebook page can make the "Green Out" last all year long by taking the Earth Day Pledge. When customers pledge to use energy-efficient practices in their homes, First Choice Power will ensure that their total energy used through the remainder of 2011 will be offset with electricity generated from renewable resources. Users also can add a Facebook badge to their personal page to show their support for sustainable energy.
