For once, peace of mind, not constantly worrying about the cost of utilities. I would like to stress that this is a wonderful program.

You're my knight in shining armor. I just want other people to know that this option is available to them and to find out whether they can get in on it too because it really does benefit all.

It’s not just the bill, but also having heat, having air, and saving money. I will tell everybody to just get involved and help the environment. We are helping each other.

Since [enrolling], I have saved much more money, and my monthly electricity bill is almost zero. I am grateful for this opportunity, and I would like to thank all the subscribers and the entire Groundswell team from the bottom of my heart.

My husband and I are tremendously grateful for our SharePower Empowered subscription -- not only for the lowered electricity costs, but also for the opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint.

It wasn't that long ago that I too was amongst the low-income median, and I struggled with paying utility bills. It wasn't easy finding assistance, so it brings me joy to be able to give back to others who need help.
