In addition to supporting Untonne and improved cookstoves in developing countries, Untonne believes it is important to take direct action to lower your carbon footprint at home, too.

In many states, Community Solar is one of those opportunities. Whether or not you own your home or have a sunny roof that is suitable for solar panels, you can support local solar installations that not only produce zero emission electricity, but also help you save money on your electric bill.

In Untonne’s home state, Oregon, Community Solar is a no-brainer: sign up and save about 5% on your electric bill through the Oregon Community Solar Project Finder.

If you live in another state, you can use a tool like Energy Sage’s Community Solar finder to locate and learn about projects near you.

Sometimes there are no-brainer options when it comes to reducing your carbon footprint without tough tradeoffs, like community solar. But at other times, reducing your carbon footprint isn’t that easy. 

Our Premium Subscribers’ monthly subscription finances carbon reductions that create another value stream and allow project developers to lower the cost of each project they implement in the field.

By buying carbon offsets from Untonne to lower your carbon footprint each month, you can magnify your impact while also helping to crack open the doors for more people to afford a radical change in health and quality of life through improved cookstoves.
