Most areas have at least one clean energy provider. You can sign up with these providers and by paying a small premium for your electricity they generate an equal amount of clean energy. Your home does not get energy directly from the clean provider, rather your payments purchase the clean electricity, which has a slightly higher cost than dirty electricity, and is then fed onto the normal electricity grid.
