NYC renewable certificates available online

New Yorkers can now buy Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) online through Green Power NYC, a website run by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the Alliance for Clean Energy New York (ACENY).  At a price of 1-to-2.5 cents per kWh, consumers can purchase wind energy or a mix of wind and hydroelectric energy through the site–though currently, it only offers choice between two providers: Community Energy (ConEdison Solutions) and Sterling Planet. These are fairly limited choices but are intended as a first step in a larger consumer-end clean energy agenda.  Purchase is offered to individuals as well as to small businesses using less than 10,000 kWh per month.
