Maryland-based Clean Currents is hosting Wind Powered Baltimore Week October 15-21 to celebrate Baltimore’s growing community of businesses, nonprofits and homes powered by wind. The week-long recognition of green energy powered organizations includes events, promotions and kicks off this year’s Green Neighborhood Challenge.
Over 35 businesses and community groups are participating in Wind Powered Baltimore Week. Events range from a B2B networking mixer to benefit Baltimore Green Works to Not Your Mom’s Ice Cream Social spoken word slam with Taharka Brothers. The week also marks the Baltimore launch of Clean Currents’ Green Neighborhood Challenge, a program that gives community groups an opportunity to raise funds for green projects while increasing support for clean energy. All participating businesses are wind powered and Baltimore-based.
“Since our Baltimore office opened, we have been welcomed by businesses and residents eager to reduce their environmental impact,” Gary Skulnik, president and co-founder of Clean Currents, said. “We’re hosting Wind Powered Baltimore Week to celebrate the impressive community of nonprofits, triple-bottom-line businesses and community leaders that embrace renewable energy and sustainability.”
Clean Currents is a retail electricity supplier that exclusively focuses on green electricity. It is the only energy supplier in the nation that is certified as a B-Corp., meaning its commitment to operating sustainably and in the public interest is incorporated into its corporate DNA.
“Businesses have a big impact on consumer behavior, and we hope that by setting an example as an environmentally responsible business, we can inspire our customers to be environmentally responsible as well,” Darius Wilmore of Taharka Brothers said. “Wind Powered Baltimore Week is a great way to encourage the entire Baltimore community to be more environmentally responsible and join the wind power movement.”
