Want to stop 7,400 pounds of greenhouse gases from spewing into our air each year? Think one person can't possibly help do that?

Check out Colorado Springs Utilities' Green Power program that allows customers to buy blocks of wind power to help reduce harmful coal power plant emissions. At present, Utilities is sold out of its current wind energy, which comes from a farm near the Colorado-Wyoming border.

But the city-owned enterprise is investing in a wind farm in eastern El Paso County and is logging a waiting list in preparation for adding more wind power to its grid in 2011. Sign up. The cost of 100 kilowatt hours is about $5 to $6 a month. There will be no charges added to your bill until next year.

Meantime, learn more about green efforts in the Pikes Peak region.
