The BRC will provide a hub for buyers and providers to come together pre-competitively in order to advance the development of clean energy
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) February 27, 2015
Boulder-based Renewable Choice Energy announced today that it has joined the Rocky Mountain Institute’s Business Renewables Center as a founding transaction service provider with an emphasis in power purchase agreement (PPA) brokering. The Center, which is comprised of renewable energy buyers, project developers, and service providers like Renewable Choice, will provide a collaborative opportunity for commercial entities and their partners to advance the growth of renewable energy.
Renewable Choice was founded in 2001 with the mission to bring the benefits of clean and renewable sources of energy to individuals and businesses. The company has pioneered corporate green power buying, providing renewable energy to the first large companies utilizing 100% wind power for their businesses. As renewable energy market has grown, Renewable Choice has continued to innovate by adding carbon offsets, sustainability consulting, and strategic renewable energy advisory services to its portfolio.
The company is a trusted partner to numerous major brands including more than 140 of the Fortune 500, alongside scores of green buildings, municipalities, universities, and small-to-medium enterprises. Renewable Choice was recognized in 2012 and again in 2014 by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a Green Power Supplier of the Year and supplies renewable energy to more of the EPA’s Green Power Partners than any other firm.
Renewable Choice’s renewable energy advisory services division provides consultative services on renewable energy strategy and power purchase agreement transactions to large commercial buyers and was a natural evolution of the market leaders’ long-standing position as an expert in corporate renewable purchasing.
“In the past several years, we have seen large-scale wind and solar PPA prices reach and beat parity with conventional sources of energy in many markets. This has led to the increasing appetite for long-term, cost-effective solutions in corporate renewables, and the BRC will provide a hub for buyers and providers to come together pre-competitively in order to advance the development of clean energy,” said Quayle Hodek, CEO of Renewable Choice Energy. “We are delighted to be included in the inaugural launch of this valuable resource.”
