The voluntary green power market continues to expand, according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) “Status and Trends in the US Voluntary Green Power Market” report, which was released during the recent Renewable Energy Markets annual conference in Washington, D.C. And experts from New York-based power broker Good Energy has been part of that expansion and cited in the NREL report.
In 2014, sales, customers, and types of green power purchasing options continue to grow. This past year, the market expanded to 74 million MWh.
“One of the reasons the voluntary market continues to expand is because of the growth of Community Energy Aggregation (CEA) in communities throughout the country,” says Gary Fogelman, Manager, Mass Markets for Good Energy.
While compiling information for “Status and Trends in the US Voluntary Green Power Market” report, the NREL researchers interviewed Fogelman and Tom Leigh, Good Energy’s Midwest Energy Sales Director, about CEAs.
Some of the information Fogelman and Leigh shared information included details about CEAs in Illinois CEAs. For example, the report notes how residential customers comprise about 85 percent of Illinois CCAs. Good Energy also shared that small businesses that use less than 15 MWh/year are also eligible for CCAs.
