3Degrees, one of the nation's leading providers of renewable energy and carbon offsets, announced today that it has taken delivery of the first-ever Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) from the nation’s first grid-tied tidal power facility.
The RECs were generated by Ocean Renewable Power Company’s (ORPC) Maine Tidal Energy Project and represent the first power from any ocean energy project to be delivered to the public grid anywhere in the United States. 3Degrees is the sole purchaser of the facility’s RECs.
“3Degrees is honored to be part of this new, innovative green power technology,” said Dan Kalafatas, CEO of 3Degrees. “Supporting this project captures the best of the voluntary renewable energy market—helping commercialize new technologies—and helps us in our mission to accelerate the world’s transition to a low-carbon renewable energy economy.”Share this post:

Dominion Virginia Power Green Power Program Surpasses 15,000 Participants3Degrees In The News
More than 15,000 customers are now signed up for Dominion Virginia Power's Green Power® program and are supporting renewable energy produced in this region to meet some or all of their home's energy needs.
The participating customers have packed an impressive environmental punch, too.
Since the program's inception in 2009, participants have supported more than 480,000 megawatt-hours of renewable energy. The generation of this "green" power has prevented the same amount of carbon dioxide from entering the air as removing 65,000 average cars from the road for one year, or the equivalent environmental impact of planting 8,700,000 trees that grow to maturity.Share this post:
