The Paris Agreement just got personal.

Last night I went to bed knowing that something our team and I have been working on for over 2 years was going to launch in the press. I’m not exactly sure how or when I closed my eyes amidst the excitement.

Not long after dozing off, I woke up to see if I had missed the breaking story of Drift. I hadn’t, but I did see another headline that was trending. (No it was not duck #covfefe.)

We knew that starting a power company was going to be fraught with pressure to take a side on climate and energy issues. Forever trying to answer the unanswerable question, “Hey Drift, are you a good utility or a bad utility?”

We didn’t want to be a utility at all. We wanted to be a software company. A software company that lets everyone vote with their wallet for what they value. We are ferociously people focused. We have built an equal access energy marketplace where people CAN stand up for what they value by choosing to prioritize price or environmental impact.

But…

after waking up this morning to the POTUS saying thanks-but-no-thanks to a global agreement that directly affects our species, it is hard not to take a side. Personally.

Generally seen as a future possibility, people and businesses who choose the zero emissions option on Drift today are leaving their old utility and paying the same or less for 100% zero emissions energy.

So, if you live in New York City:

You don’t need to drop out of the climate deal. You can make your own, personal vote for the Paris Agreement, using Drift.

You can pay your power bill directly to zero emissions power makers, so that there can be more clean energy put on your local grid.

If you don’t live in New York City, join the Drift waitlist so we know where to go next.
