North American Power, one of the nation’s fastest-growing retail electricity suppliers, has recently launched a bold commitment to corporate social responsibility: Mission to Millions. When customers switch to North American Power or invest in the company’s new Green-e® Energy certified 100% renewable energy option, American Wind, they have the opportunity to select their preferred non-profit organization from a list of featured charities. Each month, North American Power will donate $1 to the customer’s charity of choice for as long as they are on the service with an ultimate goal of donating millions to worthy causes that are powering change.
