Energy Savings Income Fund, a Toronto-based marketer of deregulated natural gas and electricity, has announced the availability of its new Green Energy Option, a package which will allow residential homeowners and small business owners to designate that all or a portion of their electricity purchases are generated from green sources.

This option will be available to all customers who purchase Energy Savings' price-protected five-year electricity option, the company notes. The product will initially be available in Ontario and Alberta, with introduction in New York and Texas expected.

"The Green Energy Option is an easy way for our customers to make a difference," says Rebecca MacDonald, chair of Energy Savings. "Not everyone has the ability to install solar panels on their roofs or wind turbines in their backyards, and enrolling in green energy provides an easy convenient route to a better environment for consumers."

Energy Savings adds that one of the first purchasers of the Green Energy Option was Atelier Thuet, a recently opened food boutique in Toronto, and its full-service catering facility.
