Partners appear on all 6 lists
San Francisco, July 23, 2013 — 3Degrees announced today that its utility partners have once again been recognized as industry leaders in marketing green power. Eight of 3Degrees’ utility green power partners appear on the nation’s 2012 Top 10 rankings, recently released by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). At least one of 3Degrees’ utility partners achieved Top 10 status on every list; this is among more than 850 utility green pricing programs in the nation. Additionally, four out of six total “Utilities Using at Least 2% Solar to Supply their Green Pricing Programs” work with 3Degrees Utility Partnership Services.
This is the eleventh year these rankings have been compiled, and voluntary renewable energy programs offered by utilities continue their vigorous growth, demonstrating both a consumer interest in supporting a domestic, clean energy economy and utility interest in meeting that demand.
