Introducing our new sponsors

From: Sankar
Sent on: Thursday, September 20, 2012 9:36 AM

Fellow nature lovers,  I am very happy and proud to announce two organizations that are sponsoring us this year for the first time.

1. Clean Currents is a green energy company that is doing great work building up the renewable energy capacity in the US. I am myself a satisfied client for the last several years and it gives me great satisfaction to have as a sponsor a company that not only cares about our environment but is also actively improving it. Also, their sponsorship will help us to continue organizing events free of charge. Don't forget to mention nature lovers while signing up! Here is a brief note from them:

Clean Currents is a local renewable energy supplier offering competitive rates for electricity while supporting clean energy production in the US. Choosing wind power has never been easier!

Did you know that you have the power to choose your electricity supplier? Not only that, but you can choose to support clean, renewable wind power instead of coal and nuclear, the primary energy sources in this area. A number of our neighbors and local businesses have already made the switch through Clean Currents; a Rockville based green energy company. The wind power option still provides a normal flow of electricity, there is no installation or switching fee, you still receive one bill and the rates are competitive with what you would pay through Pepco.

Choosing clean energy at home is equivalent to taking a passenger vehicle off the road for a year or planting 47 trees! Plus, you are supporting the growth of our domestic renewable energy industry. You can have this positive impact by simply taking 5 minutes to switch to Clean Currents.

For more information contact: Clean Currents at[masked] ext.3 To sign up, visit: and click on “Current Rates”.

2. I am also happy to introduce our sponsor the "Law Office of Nicole W. Sitaraman, PLLC"

My wife Nicole recently launched her own law practice which focuses on renewable energy, environment and social justice. She serves on the board of the DC Chapter of the Sierra Club and is part of a team advancing legislation that will bring community-based renewable energy to the District.  Here is a brief introduction:

The Law Office of Nicole W. Sitaraman, PLLC, a Washington, D.C.-based law practice committed to serving those finding creative solutions to our world’s energy and environmental challenges.  Through in-depth legal research, thorough fact-gathering and diligent attention to client needs and goals, the Law Office of Nicole W. Sitaraman, PLLC provides legal research services, counseling and advocacy on behalf of those change agents advancing a new green economy and environmental justice.  This firm provides support for energy and environmental lawyers, consulting for environmental justice organizations and general legal counsel for green businesses.

We are living in a time of environmental crisis – global warming and climate change are reaching alarming levels, traditional energy resources have serious health and environmental costs and there is a growing energy apartheid between communities of affluence and the remaining majority of the society.  The Law Office of Nicole W. Sitaraman, PLLC is a source for legal and factual analysis, strategic advice and research and communications reinforcement for those addressing these urgent issues.
