A closer look at Sustaining Member benefits

We need just a few dozen more new members to relaunch at full strength!

I have a mission for us.

Since 2021, our community has been building Currently as a home for accessible weather information and climate justice. Right now, we’re closer than ever to achieving that dream for more cities — and for more people — than ever.

Over the past two weeks, I’ve been recruiting a new crop of science writers for our newest newsletters including Atlanta, Houston, Kansas City, Madison, Wisconsin, Tucson, Arizona and London, England.

So here’s our mission: We need 164 new sustaining members during the month of May to launch at full strength in all 25 cities on June 1. So far, 10 new members have stepped up. That means we need 154 more over the next two weeks. Today I’m going to tell you why you should be one of them.

In short, I don’t know of any better way to simultaneously support independent climate media while jump-starting your own household climate journey.

When you become a sustaining member of Currently at our annual rate — which is 20% off during the month of May — you’ll instantly receive hundreds of dollars of benefits to electrify your life and support your local green economy.

Let’s break those benefits down:

  • $1000 off a home solar installation with Blue Raven Solar. The average home solar system will save you more than $50,000 over the next 25 years, so this is a no-brainer — especially since it’s free to see if your home qualifies.

  • If you’re a renter, or if you don’t live in one of the 19 states where Blue Raven works, your Currently membership also gives you free concierge service from EnergySage to help you electrify your home — including 20% off heat pumps and membership in community solar gardens.

  • As an added bonus, you’ll also get $20 off a purchase of $100 or more from your local bike shop or garden store (just email us your receipt!)

What’s more, you’ll get a free annual subscription to The Phoenix — our skills sharing newsletter for climate revolutionaries — and access to our skills-sharing forum on Slack to help you hone your climate justice efforts along with your fellow members of the Currently community. Who knows, maybe you’ll even meet the love of your life?!

So there you have it. Become a Currently sustaining member. Electrify your home. Save the planet. Fall in love.

Sounds pretty good to me. :)

May you have good weather,
