Letter From The President

The White House Letter Head

Dear Greenlight:

Thank you for writing, and for your support of our shared values.  Every day, I hear from people who are concerned about energy issues—from the price they pay at the pump today to the energy portfolio we build for tomorrow.  I am glad you took the time to share your thoughts.

One thing almost everyone can agree on is the need to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.  And I am proud to say that after years of talk, America is finally making headway.

Thanks to public investment and private ingenuity, we generate more renewable energy today than ever before.  We produce more natural gas than anyone in the world.  And for the first time in nearly two decades, we produce more of our own oil here at home than we buy from other countries.

These steps are good for our economy and our security.  They are also good for families—because producing more American energy creates more American jobs and lowers energy bills for nearly everybody.

Wasting less energy helps us even more.  We set new fuel standards for cars and trucks that will double their mileage and give drivers more bang for their buck at the pump.  We also launched initiatives to put people to work making our homes, businesses, and factories more energy efficient.  That will save businesses money on energy bills that they can use to hire more workers.

And because we are using more clean energy and wasting less, our emissions of dangerous carbon pollution are actually falling while our economy continues to grow.

This is the way forward:  good jobs, cheaper and cleaner energy, and a secure future for our kids.  To keep making progress, we need to double down on low-carbon energy—from wind and solar to nuclear and biofuels.  We should increase responsible natural gas production that boosts our businesses and keeps costs down for families.  And we should keep investing in American technologies that grow our economy while protecting our planet for generations to come.

Thank you, again, for writing.  To learn more about my plan to secure America’s energy future, visit

Greenlight Energy Powers Forward with New Solar, LED Lighting and Renewable, Fixed-Rate Energy Plans

New Solar Press Release

New York, NY–November 20, 2015–Greenlight Energy, a New York based green energy company—in its commitment to healing our environment with clean, common sense energy offerings—has launched three renewable energy programs designed to provide the most cost-effective and environmentally-friendly energy solutions for residential and commercial customers.

In October 2015, Greenlight Energy began offering no-cost solar installation, ensuring a guaranteed reduction on electricity rates with a clean, green, solar energy option. Greenlight Energy is also providing LED lighting retrofits for homes and businesses, thereby reducing energy usage and cutting costs even further.

Greenlight Energy has additionally launched 100 percent renewable electricity and carbon-neutral natural gas fixed-rate plans. Filling a void in the green energy marketplace, these fixed-rate plans (currently not offered by local utilities) were developed to help customers avoid volatile rates caused by supply/demand fluctuation, unpredictable weather patterns and a number of other variables. Greenlight sought to develop a program with both environmental benefits as well as a savings model via a consistent approach to monthly billing.

“Greenlight Energy is committed to providing the best, clean energy solutions for our customers,” said Michael Hartofilis, Vice President and Co-Founder of Greenlight Energy. “Through a combination of research, strategic partnerships and customer feedback, we are fulfilling a demand for renewable energy plans that are both environmentally friendly and cost-effective.”

Greenlight has also put their money—and muscles—where their mouth is, donating and planting nearly 400 trees to Randall’s Island parks to commemorate America Recycles Day last month.
