We are a Broker of Electricity
Charity+Power is a broker of electricity. This means that we do not take title to the power before it is sold to you. This minimizes our risk and allows us to focus on our mission. As a broker, we have been able to negotiate significant discounts from our suppliers, which allows us to remain competitive with your utility provider and, at the same time, provide a donation to your favorite charity. Because we are a broker, you will not see our name on your utility bill. Instead, you will see the name of the supplier you selected, who will be acting on your behalf with your utility provider.
