Donate to The Energy Mix

Well, this is something different…

From the moment you first laid eyes on The Energy Mix, we hope you’ve known the basics—we produce our digest and online archive as a free community service, and we’ll never try to sell you anything.
That’s still true. It always will be. But we’ve also taken a closer look at the different pay-what-you-can options for publications like ours.
Here’s why. The Mix costs about $80,000 per year to produce, and it’s funded entirely by its parent company, Smarter Shift. That doesn’t include the personal time our publisher puts into the publication at no cost.
We’re thrilled to be able to do what we do, and we don’t plan to stop or scale back. But we know we need new sources of funding to deliver all the additional services we’d like The Mix to offer: special features, new content formats, and news analyses and investigations that we think will help the fight to get the climate crisis under control.
The increase in funding isn’t happening overnight (and we’re fine with that). But we also know many of our readers have expressed a willingness to support our work through optional one-time or regular donations.
So, we’ve set up this page as one tool in a toolbox of options to bring new dollars into The Energy Mix. We sincerely thank you for reading The Mix and hope you will consider paying what you can to support our work.
