March 2009 - Catholic University plans to expand its purchases of renewable energy through savings achieved by participating in Hess Energy Marketing’s Demand Response program. Under the program, customers in the Pennsylvania-Jersey-Maryland (PJM) market can be paid for committing to reduce electricity usage during times of peak demand when power grids are under significant stress. In turn, Hess is paid by regional power pools for preparing its customers to reduce energy consumption during peak usage periods. By participating in the program, Catholic University will receive $350,000 over the next four years, enabling the university to purchase renewable energy certificates (RECs) for 30 percent of its total electric demand and invest in energy reduction programs on campus.
As part of the Demand Response program, the university received an energy audit and advanced metering equipment and, in conjunction with Hess, developed a comprehensive energy curtailment plan in the event that a regional power pool requests a short-term reduction in energy consumption.

December 2008 - Diversified Global Graphics Group (DG3), a global print and communications solutions provider, announced it will purchase 4.3 million kWh of renewable energy certificates (RECs). Under the agreement with Hess Energy, the purchase will provide enough Green-e certified RECs to supply 100% of the demand for DG3’s flagship North American Division in Jersey City, NJ. The Jersey City operation joins two London-based DG3 divisions already purchasing 100% renewable energy. As a result of the REC purchase, the company was named to the EPA’s Green Power Leadership Club, a distinction given to organizations that have significantly exceeded the minimum purchase requirements for EPA’s Green Power Partnership program.
