In a nut shell, you get to send free online gifts of renewable energy to all your friends. The gifts come in denominations of 1 minute, 5 minutes, and 10 minutes (but you have to “unlock” the 5 and 10 minute options). When you send these gifts, Village Green Energy purchases that amount of renewable energy from specific wind farms and solar arrays on your behalf. Not to mention, when you send these clean power gifts, you’re not just getting those minutes of green energy purchased. You’re also helping four wineries convert their entire operations to run on wind and solar.
The app has only been online since August 6th (i.e. two days ago) but people seem to be loving it and the first goal for Iron Horse Vineyards (which committed to go renewable at 10,000 minutes) has already been hit.
Anyway, here's a screen shot of the app. You should all check it out. It rocks.
