SAN FRANCISCO, CA (March 26, 2018)—Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) announced today that East Coast Power & Gas’s “EC Renewable” clean energy program is now certified by Green-e® Energy, North America’s leading independent certification program for renewable energy. East Coast Power & Gas is a leading energy supply company serving residential and commercial customers throughout the New York Metro area. The EC Renewable program is a renewable energy certificate program offered to East Coast Power & Gas’s commercial customers.
By enrolling in EC Renewable, customers are receiving the environmental benefits from domestic clean energy generation, and helping to encourage the use and development of new sustainable energy facilities like wind and solar.
“Through EC Renewable, East Coast Power & Gas is offering its customers the opportunity to green their electricity use,” said Jennifer Martin, executive director of Center for Resource Solutions (CRS), which runs the Green-e Energy program. “The company is joining leading providers around the country in providing its customers renewable options.”
“The opportunity to partner with Center for Resource Solutions and have our EC Renewable product certified as Green-e was #1 on our list when making the decision to enter the renewable marketplace. The standards and protocols employed ensure that our EC Renewable product and solution meets the high standards we hold all of our products to. As we further expand our footprint and move into additional markets like Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland, it is important we have the products and services people want and can be proud of,” said Vincent Palmieri, Chief Operating Officer of East Coast Power & Gas.
Green-e Energy is the leading renewable energy certification and verification program in North America. Administered by CRS, the program provides independent, third-party certification to ensure that certified renewable energy meets strict environmental and consumer-protection standards. In 2016 over 963,000 retail purchasers of Green-e certified renewable energy—including over 53,000 businesses—purchased over 48 million megawatt‐hours of Green-e certified electricity, enough to power nearly a third of U.S. households for a month.
As a provider of Green-e Energy certified renewable energy, East Coast Power & Gas agrees to abide by the Green-e Energy Code of Conduct and meet strict disclosure and truth-in-advertising requirements. All participants in Green-e Energy undergo an annual third-party verification audit and review of marketing materials to ensure their customers are receiving the correct quantity and type of renewable energy, and that advertising is accurate.
