CEC is pleased to be a beneficiary in the Reliant EcoShareProgram, a way that Texans can support the CEC and offset their own carbon production at the same time. Reliant and EarthShare of Texas have launched a program that allows Reliant customers to help reduce their carbon footprints through the purchase of carbon offsets. And for each customer-purchased offset, Reliant will make a contribution to EarthShare of Texas and its participating organizations, including CEC! The support from the Reliant EcoShareProgram is significant, and provides necessary funding to support CEC’s website, newsletter, and events. For information about how to sign up, visit the EcoShare webpage.
