Shifting to renewable energy


Let's talk about power/energy used in our houses today.

Until now, for decades, I've naturally signed with a major power company without thinking much about it. However, after starting our company and starting think more sustainably, I began to think more about it.

When I was a kid, I was told that the solar system on the roof of my grandparent's house was so innovative and that it can even heat up the water in the bathtub. 

Decades have passed since my childhood, and the supply of energy had evolved greatly. We were concerned about the lack of instability in power supply when switching to renewable energy but realized that it was not an issue at all. 

And this time, we decided to shift to renewable energy through "Minna Denryoku".

The company also supplies power to apparel companies such as Patagonia and BEAMS. In addition, they make the electricity producers faces visible and shows their photos so that individuals can "see" who is supplying the energy and we can also choose which supplier/producer to support. It's almost similar to buying vegetables with pictures of the farmers who produces them which shows both transparency and a sense of closeness to the producers. 

Lastly. let's talk about electricity bills.

Everyone can easily simulate on their site. Whether it's good or not depends on the family, so if you're worried, it's a good idea to check before you choose. (Four our household, switching made our bill 10-15% cheaper!)
