Our Case For You To Support CleanTechnica

February 24th, 2019 by  



CleanTechnica is a team of approximately 50 people working our asses off to try to bring you useful, interesting, societally beneficial original analysis and coverage of cleantech news.

We don’t always get everything right. But we try. We don’t always cover the most important stories. But we try. We don’t always succeed in teasing out the most important elements and the most informative context. But we try.

You may have seen by now that we have new options for financially supporting CleanTechnica. We’re not throwing popups in your face every time you visit in order to try to harass you into subscribing, but it sure would be nice if you took a few moments to consider what CleanTechnica is worth to you and then spent a few moments more to initiate a monthly donation.

We offer a few benefits to monthly subscribers/supporters, but we’re about to start offering more in order to share our gratitude with you. We’re going to host weekly or monthly podcast chats with subscribers (frequency depending on interest). We’re going to start sending weekly dispatches — original op-eds and highlight reels. And we’re going to involve subscribers a bit in site decision-making.

We hope that’s enough to encourage you to contribute $3 or $7 or $10 or $100 a month, which could be very helpful in weening us off of advertising dollars and enabling more content and deeper content.

Sometimes, though, we understand it’s necessary to remind people of our worth. In the past couple of months, we have published numerous CleanTechnica exclusives, which includes breaking news as well as entirely original analyses. Here are some examples:
