Have renewable energy to sell?

Western Area Power Administration is looking to purchase Renewable Energy Certificates, or RECs, on behalf of several Federal agencies.

In the Request for Proposals, also known as RFP, Western is seeking up to 584,000 megawatt-hours of RECs, over a 6-year period. Learn more about the solicitation and about RECs from Western’s press release.

If you’re interested in participating, you must mail or fax a response by July 2, 2010, at 4:30 p.m., MDT. See the current RFP for details on how to submit a proposal.

What are RECs?

RECs represent the environmental benefits of renewable energy, sold separately from power generation. This request on behalf of Federal agencies will help meet the government’s renewable energy goals.

    I watched a very interesting video on youtube about how ‘green’ Freiburg is in Germany. They are considered the greenest in the world with several citizens generating enough power from their solar panels, that they are actually profiting and selling it back into the grid.

    I think the only way to actually bring wind energy forward is to encourage local citizens to invest in community wind or solar wind funds. But to do this one needs a clear feed in tariff system.

    Thank you for another wonderful article. Where else could anybody get that kind of information in such an ideal way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information.
