  4. 4. NON-PROFIT ENERGY ALLIANCE NON-PROFIT ENERGY ALLIANCE (NPEA) is not a formal or contractual group, but an alliance of like-minded non-profits who have joined together to use their collective purchasing power to not only secure competitive electricity supply at lower cost, but to protect the environment and build a greener economy by supporting clean sources of energy that are essential to protecting our environment and building a new economy. Launched in May 2010, the Non-Profit Energy Alliance is now comprised of 66 leading-edge non-profits that will collectively save an estimated $542,769 compared to standard energy service, while supporting clean sources of energy that are essential to protecting our environment and building a new economy. The wind power purchased through this alliance offsets about 44.74 million pounds of CO2, which is equivalent to removing 4,197 cars off the roads for one year.
