Funds for the forests

If you feel a little guilty every time you flip the light switch, Pacific Gas & Electric Co. has created a way to ease the pain. Through its ClimateSmart program, launched in June 2007, customers can pay an extra fee (about $5.00 a month) to offset emissions from their electricity and gas usage. It announced recently the first projects to benefit from its customers’ generosity. It will spend approximately $2 million to help restore California redwood forests in Mendocino and Santa Cruz counties. The restoration programs were selected through a competitive process and both projects are approved by the nonprofit California Climate Action Registry and accepted by the California Public Utilities Commission. PG&E says it plans to have contracts to offset 1.5 million tons of greenhouse-gas emissions by the end of 2009. www.pge.com/myhome/environment/whatyoucando/climatesmart/
