Carbonfund.org Foundation 1320 Fenwick Lane Suite 206
Silver Spring, MD 20910
Phone: (240) 293-2700
Our Vision Our goal is to help drive the price of clean technology like wind energy to below that of dirty technology like coal. When that happens, utilities and the market will begin building wind turbines simply because that is the most cost-effective way to provide energy. Besides reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, carbon offsets drive down the cost of clean energy, hastening the transformation to a clean energy future.
