We can provide your business with athat creates hot water with energy from the sun. Better World Energy also has helpful conservation tips and affordable renewable energy offsets.
Better World Energy Offers…
- Carbon Offsets for the Home
Your house uses electricity and fuel that create hefty amounts of greenhouse gases. Sleep better at night and purchase renewable energy credits equivalent the CO2 emissions associated with your home.
- More Carbon Offsets
Energy generated for your vehicle, website, wedding, business, and airplane travel all produce harmful carbon dioxide emissions. See how much CO2 you are responsible for and offset your share by supporting renewable energy sources.
- Energy Conservation Tips
Shrink your carbon footprint by conserving electricity and reducing your usage of fossil fuels.
Tip #1: Switch to compact fluorescent lights. They produce the same amount of light as incandescent bulbs and use a quarter of the electricity!
- Solar Thermal Systems
Sites that rely on hot water can benefit from this solution, which harness the sun’s energy to heat water like a second (environmentally friendly) boiler.
More About Better World Energy
Why You Should Buy From Us
For solar thermal systems, we represent Ritter XL Solar, creators of the greatest solar thermal technology available..
For carbon offsets, Better World Energy promises to provide affordable carbon offsets at competitive prices. We believe that all carbon offsets are not created equal and strive to offer you carbon offsets with the greatest impact. Better World Energy only purchases renewable energy certificates from zero emissions generators such as wind farms or hydro facilities. By doing so, we believe we can maximize the environmental benefit of your purchase, through measurable reductions in greenhouse gases. Carbon offsets steer America away from electricity generated by fossil fuels toward energy from renewable sources. We offer several convenient ways to shrink your carbon footprint by offsetting the emissions created by your home, vehicle, airplane travel, business, or event.
Why You Should Buy Carbon Offsets
When you purchase a carbon offset, you are taking responsibility for your environmental impact. You are reducing the greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming and encouraging the growth of the renewable energy industry so that America can become a nation with cleaner air and less dependence on fossil fuels. Buying grid based renewable energy credits is the most cost effective way to reduce emissions.
How Carbon Offsets Works
After taking steps to reduce your energy consumption, you may want to do more to reduce your environmental impact. Since not everyone can install a solar thermal system to heat water with solar energy or a solar PV system to generate electricity, we provide a simple solution. To cancel out the greenhouse gas emissions created by and for you, we tackle the #1 producers of these harmful emissions — power plants that generate electricity from fossil fuels. Every carbon offset on this website is backed up by a renewable energy certificate that signifies new energy being added to America’s electricity pool from renewable source, like wind, to replace energy from fossil fuels. The vast majority of America’s electricity is still generated from fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas. Better World Energy believes the best way to reduce CO2 emissions is to replace traditional energy regeneration with electricity from clean renewable energy generators. Purchasing credits for grid based renewable energy is a very cost effective way to change our future.
What You Will Receive With Your Purchase
In addition to the warm feeling you will get just knowing you’ve helped made the world a better place, you will receive a certificate of purchase with a unique renewable energy certificate number for the environmental benefits of the megawatt hours of energy generated on your behalf.

Santa Barbara Bowl
Leading by example, Better World Energy helped the become a carbon neutral facility in 2012 by donating 233 megawatt-hours of renewable energy certificates. In addition to being an excellent outdoor concert venue, the Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation is a not-for-profit charitable organization, and a community leader in green conservation practices. This donation from Better World Energy is equivalent to the emission reductions of removing 37 vehicles from the road for one year. We are pleased to be able to support such a dynamic venue and organization.
