MyEmissionsExchange.com: Save Energy, Get Cash

We all know that saving energy saves money by lowering our utility bills. But, wait…there’s more! Now your can get paid for saving energy at home by registering at MyEmissionsExchange.com. This free website pays registered users for lowering their monthly utility bills. 

After you sign up, you can earn rewards by showing that you’ve reduced your electric, natural gas, propane or fuel oil bill from the same month a year ago. You must prove 12 months of bill history before you start earning rewards; most utility bills display a year’s worth of billing history. All you have to do is input a recent utility bill. As you reduce your energy use, you gain “personal carbon credits,” verified by MyEmissionsExchange.com. 

The website pays you for the credits by selling them on the Voluntary Carbon Market. This international carbon market auctions off carbon credits to companies that have exceeded their limited on carbon emissions in order to “offset” their extra emissions. 

The ability to sell carbon credits used to only be offered to businesses, until MyEmissionsExchange.com brought it to consumers through a partnership with OceanConnect, a global brokerage service that handles personal carbon credit trading. The profits from the sale are then deposited into your Paypal account. 

What do you think of this website? Are you going to try it out? Leave me a comment and tell me what you think.
